Blood test

Hi all,

Hope everyone is keeping as well as possible.

I’ve been getting some pain and a bit of swelling in my right wrist with pain extending down to the thumb joint. I have ankylosing spondylitis so I contacted my rheumatology department. So far I haven’t seen anyone but the nurse arranged a blood test. This came back as fine but I’m still getting the pain. Does anyone have experience of having a normal blood test but still experiencing pain and / or stiffness? Until I hear back from the rheumatologist the nurse has suggested taking co-codomol as I can’t take any- inflammatory tablets so I’ll see how that goes, but just curious to hear about any experiences with blood tests.
