Hello, necole... I am sorry to hear about your situation.  It sounds like swelling is causing the pain, possibly pinching nerves in your arms.  You haven't been to the doctor about this?  It could be a series of things.  Inflammation from carpal tunnel syndrome, gout, arthritis, or overuse of the extremities sounds like the most likelyespecially since it has been going on off & on for years.  Other things could be poor circulation or fat accumulation from Cushing's syndrome (but the acccumulation would be everywhere).  Have you tried anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen or naproxen?  You may also want to try cold compresses.  I would also recommend a visit to the doctor.  He/she would be able to make a better assessment to find out what it is.  Good luck!
