While I cannot speak to the connection between swollen joints and your sense of thirst, if there is one, swollen joints are the beginning of an arthritis. In the beginning stages cortizon injections may help, also exercise those joints, but also see a doctor! Don't let arthritis eat your cartilege to the point of needing a replacement. Inform yourself about every aspect of arthritis and act on it. Good luck.
