I just found this site and wanted to.ask your opinion. I don't know if I'm barking up the wrong tree but have gotten myself in a panic over possibly having RA.
I am 39 and have a couple of lung conditions. I recently moved to a more physical job where I'm on my feet for most of the shift.
A couple of weeks ago I started to have this weird feeling in one of my big toes when I moved it into a certain position and all I can say is that for a minute or so it's agony. This has now gone to other big toe and my mum mentioned arthritis.
A couple of days ago I had a painful knee which has since resolved and I didn't really think about as I do get aches and pains in my joints from time to time anyway.
Apart from the toe pain I don't really have and any other major symptoms apart from occasionally feeling unwell due to fatigue which brings on flu like symptoms.
I'm just wandering what others think? I'm thinking that I possibly have the beginning of RA.
I have booked an appointment with GP in early Jan
