Been told by GP he thinks its RA but doesn't want to refer me to a Rheumatologist straiught away - give it a month or so he said.
Extreme swelling from ring finger - up and down pain radiates towards wrist, wrist swollen, elbow etc. So given prescription for 500mg Naproxen .
Been taking since Tuesday and swelling gone down so much - aiming to go back to work after a week self certing, but feel sickly....
Any magic tips for not feeling sick - also more emotional than I thought I'd be.
Job is part office based, part home visiting - going back tomorrow to see how I fare -
