Swollen finger joints. No pain. Can cracking my knuckles be the reason? If not then what? Thanks in advance.

For the last few mornings I've been waking up with a swollen finger or two. In the knuckle joint. By early afternoon the swelling has receded.?
It depends: First, your doctor needs to diagnose what is causing the swelling. There can be many causes and each one requires a different treatment. If it is caused by arthritis, anti-inflammants may be prescribed. If it is an infection, antibiotics. If it is from trauma; rest. You get the picture. Get a diagnosis first and then the treatment is prescribed. Read more

Swollen finger joints on both hands for 3 months? My doctor did an ANA test which came back negative. Now she says we shouldn't worry about it anymore
Swollen Joints: Hi Cory: Symmetrical (both hands) swollen joints for 3 months sounds suspicious for arthritis. An ANA test screens for connective tissue diseases (lupus) and a negative test does not exclude diseases like RA which have different antibody tests. Also, a complete medical history (like family history) and physical exam is necessary to determine the potential causes. See a rheumatologist Read more
My 9 yo daughter has swollen finger joints in one hand and has elevated aso levels, could this be from scarlet fever 4 yrs ago?
Maybe: Elevated aso levels indicate a past strep infection....Just not exactly when. It is important to have her evaluated to see if it is something acute or if it could be related to strep. In the cases I have seen of rheumatic problems after strep the patients did not remember having a strep infection. If her scarlet fever was treated then this may not be related.

You may very well still be hypothyroid. I would suggest seeing an endocrinologist who may be more liberal in your lab readings. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Unfortunately, even severe injuries could look innocuous. I personally feel it is important to have these injuries evaluated in order to rule out a more sinister injury. It could mean the difference between 3 weeks of buddy taping and surgery... Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
