What Do Arthritis Hands Look Like
Joints involved: You can see some enlargement of certain joints in the hands, such as those in your fingers that allow them to bend. They can also become slightly bent and fixed. In rheumatoid arthritis the fingers can cross over each other and you may see the wrist deviate in the direction of the little finger ("ulnar deviation"). ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Joint swelling: In the most classical presentation there is symmetrical swelling around the middle joints (pip) in the fingers and in the knuckles. The end joints, nearest the nails, are usually spared. It is also symmetrical in both hands. The areas between the joints are relatively normal. The swelling may be warm and there may be slight redness as well. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
It feels like the blood are all in my hands and don't circulate i don't know if its arthritis or what
Can't be so, but...: While your description can't be real, i believe you feel a fullness and/or stiffness in your hands that would almost feel like what you decribed. If you have a reddish to purpleish discoloration over the joints, you may have arthritis. But stiffness is what most people feel before they have pain. See your doctor. Aleve (2) twice a day should improve the sx, but still see dr. To r/o inflammation! ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
I'm achy in my hands, this is new to me. I'm 34 and do massage professionally. Does this sound like arthritis? Is there a way to reduce its onset?
Maybe, maybe not: Cracking a joint moves the parts of the joint, with the cracking noise coming from cartilage surfaces sliding, from movement of a little air-space from one place in the joint to another, or from some other non-traumatic event. One person with arthritis inflammation in a joint can feel better and looser at the joint after cracking it, while another person can feel more joint pain after cracking it. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Stiffness: Is the most common complaint. Pain is usually bimodal meaning worse in the am and then later in the day. Pain should improve in the am within 30 min or so as the hands and fingers are used.

I : I would recommend starting with a good primary care physician. Without looking at his hands and seeing which way they are bending, it is difficult to start narrowing down a diagnosis. Some hand deformities are inherited, but not necessarily present at birth. Others are progressive and related to inflammatory conditions, one of which is rheumatoid arthritis. Others are related to injuries. Even a simple trigger finger can lock the finger in a bent position. The primary care physician can then decide if a rheumatologist, hand surgeon, or another specialty is most appropriate. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Dull achy growing pain like pain, from shoulder to hand left side. No chest pain etc. Feels like arthritis, pinched nerve or carpal tunnel. Opinion?
Herniated disk: When numbness and pain in the hand feel like its shooting down from the neck and shoulder region, there is likely a compression of the nerves in the cervical spine.
