Achy breaky knuckles
For the last few weeks I have noticed a definite change in my hands. Specifically my knuckles!
They are sometimes achy.
Like today. Outside it was cold and wet and my knuckles were very achy. Enough that I needed to pop a few Advil!!
So what the heck is that all about.
I am 65 and those knuckles have served me well for many years without complaint. They aren't particularly beautiful, and they aren't knobby or wrinkly or bumpy or crackly. They are just knuckles.
They have done their job for many years without calling attention to themselves.
And now they are becoming attention-getters! Crap!
Could this be the early signs arthritis? No. My mom and sister are plagued with this condition, but I have always felt blessed to have missed that bullet.
Now I am not feeling so blessed.
