Wondered if someone out there could advise me? I've been to see a rhuem consultant twice. I have pain in both my hands and feet. Each day is different, which fingers ache, whether I can only hobble or both!! He's taken various blood tests and apparently I haven't got RF showing up. He's finally started me on hydroxychloroquine 5 weeks ago and told me it'll take about 2 months to start working. He told me to keep taking ibuprofen but that doesn't seem to work any more. He told me that there was no diagnosis, it was still the exploratory stage. No other information. I'm not seeing him again until early July. In desperation I went to see my GP and was told I had sero-negative arthritis (no information about what it was!). He then gave me strong painkillers which put me on another planet the couple of times I've taken them. All the information I know about arthritis I've looked up on google! I feel totally at sea, nobody seems to want to give me information or help. I feel desperately tired a lot of the time and am struggling with primary teaching. Not sure if I should be attending a clinic or if there's a professional who could listen and advise me. Any idea what I should do?
