Hello all, for the past few days I have awakened in the morning with swollen sore knuckles. It feels like what arthritis might feel like. There is fluid there, I can tell. Do you think that caffeine can do this or salt? It hurts pretty bad. Could it be just during that time of the month? How can I get this to go away?

It could be some edema caused by salt. Some folks are very sensative to salt and it will cause some swelling. I know in the summer when it is quite hot and humid and I drink a lot of iced coffee or iced tea I will get that even in my ankles as well as fingers. Lay low for a few days and see how it goes. You might also have a touch of Arthritis too. I use very little salt but let's face it, it's in almost everything!...
Feel better, and good luck...JJ...
