My hans swell, My arms go numb at times during use. I have also experienced extreme head aches with naseau and dizziness. I am 40 and it has been occuring for the past 3 months. I am currently not on any perscription medication.
Have you seen your GP? I am not a doctor, but I think you need to see your physician to have some bloodwork done. Your GP may decide you need xrays, a nerve conduction test, or an MRI. If your bloodwork shows inflammation, he/she may refer you to a rheumatologist.
Tylenol helps with pain, but it is not an anti-inflammatory, so it doesn't help the swelling. Ibuprofen and naproxyn are anti-inflammatories. These meds are hard on your stomach, though, so you probably need to ask your doctor before you try them.
Hope you feel better soon!
