This week has been a v er you painful week with my arthritis. Both of my hands were very red all week. Also felt like I was loosing strength in one of my hands do to the pain. As of right now while I'm trying this message feel it through the top of the hand more so than the palm of my hands but the bone just below my middle fingers is very sore and tender to touch. When I'm driving my car it hurt to put pressure on my hands are on the steering wheel. I use my hand alot for work and feel that the pain is affecting my work performance. It's slowing me down . My boss doesn't know that I have arthritis. I haven't told her, because I don't want to sound like I'm wining about it or I can't do my job because of my arthritis. At this point I think I need to see a doctor about my pain. I go to my GP next month for my yearly appointment. I know he'll ask how my arthritis is. I'm sure he'll tell me that I need to go back to the rheumatologist again. I haven't been to my rhumy since 2015. As far as my knees go they are painful as well. Im,also starting to get discomfort in my left leg now and left buttocks cheek . Yes I know I sound like I'm in a mess right now. Between all my issues with my arthritis. But new symptoms are starting to be noticed and I'm not liking any of it one bit.
