Dear Kate - I have an ankle that swells up in the same way. As you say it's not painful but I know it's swollen. I am also on Brufen Retard - 1600mg each morning, and I am finding my arthritis more stable, for now!!
Sometimes I find a cold pack will help in reducing inflammation, but when it comes to painful neck & shoulders I use a hot pack or mu TENS machine. The Tens is only good on anything muscular. Regards, Phyl
