Over use of hand causes swelling etc. Twice in two months. Active 82 year old female.
Hello @kauaimac, Mayo Clinic does have some information on diagnosis and treatment for pseudogout here:
May I ask if you have seen a doctor for treatments and if they made any suggestions?

Arthritis doc retired am seeing his extremely knowledgeable PA in an office setting at a local hospital.
@kauaimac you mentioned over use of hand causes the swelling. Can you share what type of overuse causes the swelling? Everyday chores or other activities? I was just wondering if the PA has given you any treatment suggestions to follow.
It can be anything from working in my one (I'm in a condo) flowerbed to mopping the floor for it to start and it is down hill from there with regular house work. I didn't let it go this time, within two days I was at the clinic for a cortisone shot. I know how it actually started though. I forgot to wear my splints(both wrists) for 24 hours and sure enough within a day there was pain and then swelling then the red color up the arm started. Partly my fault.
