Patient :Every month my left knee swells up and gets stiff. There's no pain or warmth just a lot of inflamatuon and lack of mobility. This same issue sometimes happens in my right elbow and right shoulder blade. My shoulder blade swelling and stiffness is painful and the restriction of movement makes it difficult to sleep. Most of the pains are made worse at night and last up to a month or more at times. What is this? Who should I see for help? And what can I take to treat it?
