Last week we were on vacation and my hands and feet/ankles swelled up. I never get swollen like that and it was pretty cool out so not from the hot weather. The swelling went down after a couple days but then my fingers, toes, knees, almost all my joints just hurt! It was like I had arthritis, I couldn't open jars, etc. It's been about a week now and I still have some pain but it's getting better.
Are there viruses that can cause joint pain and swelling? I was sort of sick about a week before this started but just for a couple days. Maybe it was some weird reaction to that? Has anyone had this happen before?
