For the past few years I've had intermittent aching/bit of pain in my right hand – nothing major – just that annoying stretchy/cramp feeling. However for the past couple of months it’s changed.
I’ve now been getting pain and stiffness in my index finger and today it hurt so much that I dropped my pen when writing. Also, I was on a plane coming back from Florida about 3 weeks ago and my whole hand sort of seized up and was VERY painful. I couldn’t hold or touch anything and it hurt when I moved about.
I do have SLE, APS and Fibromyalgia but it’s always been fairly mild. When I read the posts you guys send, mine health issues seem a lot less serious than yours. I suppose it could be changing – bloody hope not.
I don’t want to go to my GP or contact my Rheumy AGAIN as I’m right in the middle of an issue at the moment regarding my knee (have a Meniscus tear and waiting for a cortisone injection and an Op). They make me feel like I’m bothering them but at the same time if it’s something that I should be concerned about or could take something for/have treatment for – I don’t want to not do anything about it.
Soooooo – you’re all my “go to guys” right now. Hope you can advise?
Thanks … Nat
