Size isn't everything. Sorry, I couldn't resist but in reality, joint size has no correlation to joint pain. With that said, the list of causes for joint pain is myriad, starting with acute trauma/injury and chronic use/damage, eg osteoarthritis. In between are many infections, inflammatory conditions, metabolic disorders, and even other mechanical issues. Check out www.mdguidelines.com/arthralgia for more information. Good luck!
