On and Off Finger swelling 8 months now

Could be Reactive Arthritis - I have it and my hands and feet swell.  I was tested and it seems Barley is on my list of no-nos but it seems like almost everything effects me.  I'm building up to do a Candida Diet for 30 days to see if that helps.  I got strept throat back in July, 2005 and still have this problem.

lymph nodes swelling?

Hi.  If those nodes have been persistently swollen for over a year, these may be caused by a chronic infection like tuberculosis.  If you have COPD you certainly are more prone to develop chronic or recurrent lung infection.  The other possibility is that the enlarged nodes may be a sign of an undiscovered malignancy.  I think this is the reason why your doctor wants to do a PET scan, to rule out this scenario.

knee swelling and pain

Hi, I am not a doctor (you can find the docs on the right hand side of the forums page) but I would like to share a little with you that may help. X-rays focus on your skeletal system so tendons do not show up in x-rays and cartiledge is not always clear.  MRIs are your best bet for soft tissue readings.   Bursitis is miserable (I get it in my hips) and can cause painful swellings like you are describing and yes, they can refill soon after being drained.   I hope you will contact your doctor and see about getting that drained again.  I hope you get relief soon!
