Need evaluation: Joint pain and possible joint swelling needs to be evaluated. Start with your family doctor if you have one. Otherwise, see a rheumatologist.

Many possibilities: Your pain could be as a result of many different things. A thorough history and physical exam and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams are needed to determine the exact cause. Causes of pain may include: trauma (fracture, sprain, arthritis), infection, metabolic conditions (gout), musculoskeletal or biomechanical abnormality and neurologic conditions (neuropathy).
