Hello Doc

I am a 34 year old lady. I have recently started to experience pain in my joints/bones in my arms and hands.

What can be causing it?

Luka, it’s difficult to say without being able to examine you first. It might be due to inflammation, arthritis (gout, osteoarthritis, etc), infection or injury. The best would be to take an anti-inflammatory for 3-5 days and see what happens. If it doesn’t clear up the best would be to see your doctor. Good luck.
