Aching Joints
Morning Doc,
The last few days my joints have felt quite tender and some even painful, but only in the mornings when I wake up. Once I move them around the pain dissapates. My elbows , wrists and fingers.
My diet has not change and I drink plenty of water. I do not drink fizzy drinks.

What can I do ?

Dear Anon
Depending on your age this could be a sign of osteo arthritis - let your GP have a look and see if you need blood tests or x/rays. Anti-inflammatory medication should help ( like Neurofen)
