I've been having pain and stiffness in my hands for about a month now. Particularly at night. General feeling of unwell, aching etc.
Went to the doctor and they took bloods.
It came back with abnormal rheumatoid factor. Number was 28.
I have no idea what this means, but I really feel unwell.
There wasn't any note from the doctor telling me what to do when I spoke to results.
My c reactive protein was normal, and apparently erthrycyte sedimentation rate wasn't tested as apparently the sample was over 24 hours old when it got to the lab?
I'm not sleeping well and Lying in bed worrying about what might be wrong with me.
