Dr. Johannes F Eloff answered
More Tests and info: You mentioned that there was no acidity, what other blood tests were done. I'm of the opinion that the acidity you refer to is Uric Acid. Was an Arthritis profile test performed together with an Auto-immune profile. If not, then those tests are required to get a clearer picture of your painful swollen fingers. What kind of work are you doing and are you right or left handed?
