Hi I'm 55 yrs and suffering from arthritis for about 10yrs. I've not been diagnosed as yet, everytime I've been to the GP they have done blood tests and said they are all normal. The past couple of years I've had really bad flare ups and it effects multiple joints. So I contacted my GP yesterday as I am fed up with this now, I also have COPD so I'm coping with a lot at the moment. GP explained he thinks I have osteoarthritis as the lasts blood tests were normal and he'd going to repeat these in a week but thinks they will be normal. He is going to prescribe some pain killers in the meantime. At the moment I have swollen feet and ankles GP says this is fluid has anyone else had this with arthritis?
