I'm new here. Got my first appt at hospital next week and I start university the following week.
My hand swelled up in April so ended up in A&E as it was sooooo sore. Xrays done-all normal. Several appointments later from my GP I've finally been referred. Swelling has gone down but joints ache in my hands, knees and feet and I'm so tired. In my hands my joints feel really stiff and look shiny-sometimes the knuckles get really sore underneath-it almost feels itchy! My whole body kind of feels creaky too. My big toe especially is so annoying as it clicks constantly.
A blood test I had showed a 'raised inflammatory marker.' :?
My appt letter says to allow 2 hours...wonder what they are planning on doing to me?
