After 7 years of marriage i noticed a bit of spot excema under my eternity ring. Also my wedding and engagement rings were feeling tighter, so I removed them and carried on wearing the eternity ring. They're all platinum so couldn't see why they'd irritate my skin. Eventually that got tight too so I took it off. Now I realise that was the beginning of my RA: one minutes fingers are chipploatas, a couple of hours later they're jumbo sausages. 18 months on still not able to wear them, even if re-sized what size to go for as they fluctuate so much? I don't really mind not wearing them, it used to really bother my husband but not now as they're just symbolic at the end of the day and we know we're married.
So it got me wondering what other people have had to give up because of RA but it doesn't bother them too much
Hope you're having a good day
