    I know my hand were the 1st joints affected with RA.  I had trouble as young as 16 at times.  You do need to have tests done to find out the cause though.  Are there any other joints affected?  How long has these been going on?

    These are questions a doc will want to know as well. 

    It would be a good idea to keep a journal, writing down when it happens and if you notice that it is worse certain times of the day etc.....That will help the docs as well.
