Hi all, This is my first post as i need help and clarification. Back in March this year 2014, out of no where i woke up with Swollen fingers in the AM, did think much of it. Long story short. After a couple of months and no help from DR's i couldn't walk in the AM. My hands were so swollen and painful and would "catch" on everything. It got to a point where sitting still was painful, moving was painful, i could not grip onto anything, open any bottles or make a fist. I am in a mess.
However all my blood tests were fine, so were my x rays. I ended up paying to see a Rheumatologist, who said they dont know, it might be RA. And gave me a Depo medrone 120 injection. Well i was back to the old me. Perfect, thank god. I thought it was all over. 2 months later now October the Rheumotologist is dismissive but i am back to waking up with tingling pins and needles in my hands, slightly sore wrists and catching clunking shoulder.
Please help where should i go next?
Im so scared of RA changing my life im 30 and extremely active and physical.
Can it be anything else?
