I'm a 48 year old male I woke up with

Patient

Q: I'm a 48 year old male. I woke up with left arm hurting down to fingers. Now fingers are swollen and around knee areas. Have some numbness and tingling in left fingers.

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
This will need further investigations to rule out arthritis. I will advise CBC, ESR, CRP, RA Factor, and you can follow up with your family physician.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards.
