just wondering if this sounds like rheumatology problem or maybe thyroid. Two weeks ago thumb had swollen to twice its size and very painful at joint, swelling went down after few days but thumb still very painful also get throbbing stabbing pain in ball of foot. Have now had painful wrists and couple of other fingers and now get stabbing pains in leg, GP has organised blood tests and prescribed anti inflammatories which I dont want to take until I get a proper diagnosis, does it sound like rheumatoid arthrits, thanks.
