Thanks for your query.

I suspect a non specific inflammatory disease would have affected your joints.

I suggest you get certain blood tests like C-reactive protein, ESR erythrocyte sedimentation rate and Rheumatoid factor to rule out conditions which can present this way.

Meanwhile, you can take pain killer like Diclofenac in combination with serratiopeptidase to get rid of the inflammation and swelling.

Hope, I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.
