Hi. I think I may have arthritis in my hands and wondered how the doc would be able to tell and what can be done about it. I've been dealing with achey hands for a long time now but it seems like they ache constantly especially around the tips of my fingers and it just gets worse all the time. I take Ibuprofen at night to help me sleep but am afraid to take too much. I have an appointment with my primary care physician in two weeks to get my hands looked at and wondered what I should expect. Thank you for your help.
