Answer
Carolyn,
Waarm welcome to you!
Do you have neck swelling? If your Thyroid tests are normal then I dont think your hand swelling is due to thyroid. Are you taking any medication regularly? I could not understand last part of your mail where you metioned something about x-ray. Please explain me what exactly you want to know.

Thanking you!
