Swollen Right hand

I have been experiencing swelling and pain in my right hand for over 5 months.  I saw my doctor and he just dismissed me.  My hand hurts is swollen 6 out of 7 days and the middle finger hurts at knuckles and is hard to bend.  The area right below the fingers on the palm of the right hand is swollen and painful. Fingers look like little sausages they are so swollen right now; I don't have swelling any other place.

Hi kay, you should consult an orthopedic surgeon, as it could be rheumatoid arthritis. He will suggest few tests to diagnose the condition. Other diseases like gout should also be ruled out. As of now, taking anti-inflammatory analgesics will help to relieve pain and swelling.

i had a fight about 2years ago and since then i have been experiencing tingling fingers, and a swollen palm when i grip things and when i write. my right hand is constantly aching and i find it very hard to grip things and carry on with everyday things. iv had an ecg and an ultrasound scan to see if it is carpal tunnel. it turned out its not. but now the doctors have discharged me and i feel that i cannot carry on with this everyday. what could this be? and what can i do? please write back. marissa x
