Sore Joints All Over And Swollen Hands And Feet
Acute Rheumatoid: Acute swelling of joints could be a serious problem. You may have an 'auto-immune' disease where you are making antibodies to your own joints (example=rheumatoid arthritis). Simple blood tests can sort this out. The fastest test is a 'sed. Rate' (&crp) and if elevated highly suggests an auto-immune disease. I recommend getting to your doctor right away, then you may need a 'rheumatologist'.See 1 more doctor answer

Need to be seen: Your symptoms may be related to an infection or possibly an autoimmune process. There are several viral infections that can give you the symptoms you describe and lab work can confirm if this it the case.

Inflammation: Swollen tongue, hands and feet could be angioedema--all the symptoms you name could come from a food allergy, and that is one thing you would want to rule out before looking for more chronic and insidious diseases, because the treatment is so straightforward--don't eat the food.

What causes swollen hands, feet, and ankles? Not reduced with diuretic only prednisone. Swelling inbetween finger joints not the joints themselves.
Inflammation: Sounds like inflammation. Must search for cause. Rule out food sensitivity. About 10 percent of population can be sensitive to nightshades, about 30-40 percent can be sensitive to gluten and casein. Other more common food sensitivities include soy, corn, beef, etc. Consider food elimination for at least 2-3 months.
