May I just ask, are copd & rheumatoid conditions linked in any way? I am having terrible trouble with my hands at the moment : (

Hi Jemash

They arent sure yet ....but im convinced theres a link. I had raised alt in liver for five years and all dr kept asking was how muvh alcohol did i drink!! At same time each autumn /winter till early spring i was knocked out with horrendous chest infections (which alwayz went to my left lung due to previous pneumonia in it) last april my right fingers swelled up to double size but looking back id not been abld to open lids off jars or bottles for some years. My rheumy said the raised liver was almost certainly inflamation in body or infection combo both. Now on meds it has come down.

But xmas i came down with another chest infec which has knocked me for six my hands and elbows are really sore and ive come out in funny rash random places nose and wrist.

I saw my new chest consultant last week and he said they could be linked hence ct scan . Its so odd ...how did yours start chest ?? Ill keep you updated hope you get some relief. Love Judith xxx

Thanks for your reply Judith : ) my copd diagnosis was from a chest infection! That was dec 2012 my fingers started playing up oct last year & they thought it was nerve entrapment! But have been for tests & it doesn't seem to be the case! :( I am having a mri scan to look at my spine & also being sent to a reumatoligist! Just want to be free of the discomfort, as its with me day & night :( stay as well as you can & please keep me posted, take care, liz xx
