Hi Again Countryguy,

Arthritis can "smolder" as you suggested and/or can be from no known or particular cause. However arthritis can also come fairly quickly following an injury or insult to the site. There is more then one type of arthritis.

You might want to have a blood test for RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis) to rule this out. You would think that the physicians could tell the difference and would have informed you of this diagnosis. It is a question you may just want to ask on your next appointment.  RA is much more generalized and wouldn't be confined to one location. .

Best of Luck,
~Tuck
