I had a really rough time with that - and it was everywhere. Detoxing and treatments were the only things that helped me. Turmeric, ginger and bromelain used to be my most important supplements because they lowered the pain a bit.
I also deal with either Lyme or psoriatic arthritis, so my joints are very much involved. Even though I have zero markers for inflammation or arthritis, my fingers and toes all twist and are bent, have "overly" large knuckles and hurt a lot.
The inflammation, which is not able to be measured by the more common testing that most doctors will run, is common for Lyme patients, although not everyone experiences pain from it.
It can also be from a combination of the inflammation and nerve/neuro issues - which can become inflamed as well.
