I've had for many months swelling between my middle finger and index finger knuckles, they are always warm/hot within the joint and I have a hard lump below my right outer ankle bone! I've had both my bunions operated on as caused tremendous pain and swelling! Under my left foot at the very base on big toe I had jelly lump called bursitis leakage! My left knee is slightly swollen from doing nothing and swells when I try to walk for a great length of time! I always have neck pain due to my neck now protruding forward despite exercises and heated shoulder pad!
Now I've read on many medical websites that fibro doesn't cause actual swelling in the joints just lots of pain and stiffness! And when I've gone to my Dr he blames everything on fibro and has done one blood test for RA which was negative! My physio said it sounds like I have RA and should push for more tests but its all getting me down as he doesn't take me serious and only wants to give me prescriptions every time I go!
Can someone please advise me what I should or shouldn't be doing I'm so very fed up with the healthcare system.
Sorry for the long story and thank you for reading
