Hi all - I'm waiting for an appointment with a rheumatologist but in the mean time i was wondering if any of you has had similar sysmptons to mine.
I,m 41 and It started in August 09 with sore feet after i'd been sitting or when i got out of bed, this eases once i've got going but feet and anckles ache on and off during the day. In November i had severe pain in my left knuckle and numbness in the same finger (the numbness is still there) At christmas the pain spread to my right hand as well and now i have sore knuckles and aches in my hands and wrists. Also when i do certain things like pull off my childs welly i get an "exsplosion" of pain and tingling which lasts a few minutes.
Doethis sound familiar with RA? Xrays of my left hand haven't shown anything and all my blood tests are normal?
Would really appreciate any comments or advise
