Hello every body

i was digonised with Arthritis (arther as i call it) last year mainly in my ankle, knee and wrist but my ankle being the worste. I am rarely without pain in ankle joint and keep going back to docs and this time he subcribed me some gel so fingers crossed I am going back in a week to ask to be refered to a specialist with bupa as work pays for me as i feel i need more infomation.

not sure if any body can advise as doc didnt seem to answer me that good but every so often i have a flaire up and ALL my joints burn like hell, and i have like little shivers going through my body i feel exshusted and have to go to bed yet next morn apart from feeling really rough and pain in ankle im fine .. funny thing is this always seems to happen at night.

any advise or info if other people have similar experiances would be greatfully resieived i feel at the moment i need to gather as much info on "arhter" as possible to enable me to cope

many thanks
Gail :lol:

    Hello gail
    When I get a flare...only found out what this was when I came on this forum....I to get shivers, I feel cold from the inside if that makes sense, sometimes it feels like flu symptoms.
    I do hope you get to see a consultant very soon, lets us know how you get on.
    Love
