I have Psoriatic Arthritis and my fingers definately are affected. At times they hurt so bad that I would put them in a cup of ice for as long as I could stand it. esp. the middle and ring fingers. I understand what you say about
feeling them. It's like you are aware of something different there, but the pain has yet to really surface. Am I right? My wrists ache too, and my toes and ankles. I have been on prednisone for autoimmune hepatitis so I have been pain free for some time. Now that I am weaning off the prednisone, the pain is coming back.
I don't do much exercise :-( not as much as I should, but do eat right
food can contribute to arthritis too. My best friend for pain was/is ice and heat, alternating it. I think a lot of people take that for granted, but it sure takes down the inflammation for me. I grab whatever is in the freezer, even a bag of veggies.. lol if I don't have an ice pack available, sometime have to wrap both wrists and ankles at the same time. I hope you aren't gettting PA, but there are some good medications out there now for it.
