Brief Answer:
What are our symptoms?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I definitely need to know what these symptoms are in order to be able to come up with a list of possible differential diagnoses.

Possible differential include rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory joint disease, reactive inflammation of the joint, etc.

In all, I will like to hear your symptoms and review the laboratory tests to see which most likely explains your symptoms.

I wish you well.
