    I have been tested and do not have arthritis...What causes my fingers to swell and hurt so bad? My hands are so stiff and painful, many days I cannot even type on the computer!

    but I have always associated it with the humidity or eating to much salt

    My fingers some times look like little sausages and are very stiff and hard to move. My feet swell a lot too!

    I read somewhere that this can also be caused by too many carbs as well as salt because our circulation is so bad. I do find that when I keep away from sugar, pasta and all those yummy carbs, get enough protein, and lots of water, my hands are better. Also some meds can cause swelling in hands/feet. Another one of those things to put up with but hope that helps.
