Swelling in palm and foot
My husband cannot grip anything properly. There is swelling in the small joints of Palm and foot. Is it osteoarthritis? The pain is strong in morning and it gets milder as he start working and walking. Firstly we were thinking about Covid as sometimes bodyache may be a symptom. But the pain persist for more than one month now and no other symptoms of Corona is seen. By this he had tried painkilling sprays but without use
