Q: What causes needle-like pain in the finger and toe joints?

I am 54 and have pain in my finger joints and the joints of my toes. Can it be pre-menopause?

Hi Rose Ann,

Are there any other symptoms that make you think it might be related to menopause?  I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but I think symptoms like that might be more related to some type of arthritis.  Please consider seeing your physician to discuss this, and I hope you find some relief!

Good luck - PJH
