I'm so depressed and frightened. I'm due to see the doctor tomorrow, I had raised rheumatoid factor last week. Been having bad pain and hand stiffness for about a month now.
The last few days I feel generally unwell, sleep is bad, ache all over. Walking is a struggle.
I'm petrified that I have arthritis. I'm 44, and my life revolves around exercise. The way I feel at the moment, I can't do anything.
Could it be something else? I'm tearful at the moment thinking that my life might change because of this.
