Can be arthritis or tendonitis.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in the joint of thumb can be due to arthritis or tendonitis. Doing a hot compress and application of local analgesic gel will help.
It is best to consult an orthopedician and get your uric acid levels also evaluated. Do get proper medicines prescribed for relief.
I hope this answers your query.

Hello Dr. Samuel,

I've been having moderate to severe stomach pain since Monday (10-9-2012). I've been taking Daypro for tendonitis on my right knee and Septra for a staph infection on my left knee (of which I got from playing contact sports but never properly healed). I actually went to the ER for the stomach ache since online queries suggested I should see a doctor immediately when on those medications. The supervisory doctor told me they couldn't find anything wrong with my blood or urine samples so they sent me home. I discontinued using the Septra last night which seemed to help my stomach but I am now experiencing moderate stomach pain.

It is localized below my sternum across the left and right sides (right along the Large Intestine). Massaging it dissipates the pain but it comes right back. I was constipated initially on Tuesday but had diarrhea later in the day. It is currently grainy and darkish brown. I don't have a problem, in terms of pain, with my bowel symptoms. I've made an appointment with a Gerontologist for next Tuesday morning before work but I was wondering if you could help me figure out what it might be and give me help on how to reduce the pain.
