Thanks for posting your query.

From the description, it seems that you are suffering from polyarthitis, the cause of this might be Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus), psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis (OA), Infectious arthritis or crystal deposition arthritis.

It not seems to be related to effect of femlion usage.

I also encourage you to consult an orthopedician/ Rheumatologist for physical examination. A few blood tests and X-rays will help us diagnose the condition and help us in choosing the best approach of treatment.

In the interim, you can take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily) to reduce pain and inflammation.

Wishing you good health

Hi, Thanks for the query.
The complaints you had described like swollen fingers and toes it could be a variety of rehumatological joint pains. The numbness in the fingers could be due to swelling. Thee is no relation between the use of femilon and the joint pains. I suggest you to consult a Rheumatologist regarding your joint pains.
