Arthritus?
Dear Doc

I have very sore hands in the evenings and mornings. I''m busier that normal with a crawling baby but don''t think it''s muscle pain. More knuckle and ligament pain.
My grandmother and mother both suffer from arthritus. Could this be the same?

I suggest that you consult your doctor for blood tests and x-rays of both your hands to exclude arthritis. In the interim you can use Coxflam once daily to alleviate the pain.
