I've spent the last month going to the GP trying to get treated for my finger joints, back and my right wrist being stiff, swollen and painful. They gave me diclofenac and some sort of steroid shot, but it's not that great so i'm having to take co-codimal, together they work well enough but the swelling has not gone down. It remained in my hands, wrist and back til very recently when it has also moved to my right second toe, and now my right knee is starting to stiffen slightly. My appt with the arthritis clinic is the 18th of Dec but I'm freak'n out that it's going to spread through out my body before anything gets done. Is it normal for it to spread so fast I can't really find anything on other websites.
