Stiffness, pain in hand. Arthritis or affect of cat bite 2 years ago.
I was bitten by my neighbours lovely cat! I should never have stroked it?!! I had antibiotics as the swelling was huge and the pain intense.
This settled after 3 weeks but for the last 6 months or so I have had stiffness in my knuckles, like electric shocks in my finger tips and general awkwardness (like getting change from my purse).
My knuckles are increasing in size and also my joints in my hand seem bonier?
I'm 44! Could this be arthritis?
My fingers are mishapen. ( I naturally have big knuckles and long fingers). Oh and I was a hair dresser for 28 yrs.
Pain is worse after ironing, cycling....so gripping things.
