My left knee is getting stiffer. I noticed it about three years ago went to the doc he said it wasn't swollen or hot so nothing to worry about. But it's been getting worse and lately it's bugging me. It's like it's dry and tight inside. Right now it is hot but normally its not really. Right knee is ok. Hands also tighter than they used to be. I wonder if anyone knows- is this ME or have I got arthritis or something else? I just know my doc will not be interested.
