sounds like one, sorry get appoint with GP or ring rhuem nurse?

Mayb ur gp could ring rheumy for u to get advice re steroids or something to help til u see rheumy team? Mine did when my symptoms first hit.

Thanks all................x

feel sooooo bad......

I just had the same thing happen to me about 1 1/2 months ago. Definitely call your rheummy doctor. I called her office and my doctor saw me the same day. She put me on prednisone and within a week the swelling started going down. Good luck!
