About 6 weeks ago I started to get a pain in my right wrist and then my fingers started to swell. I could not put any weight on it. The same thing has happened to my other wrist and my right ankle, I also have a stiff neck. My finger are now like sausages and very painful. I have been taking Naproxen and Paracetamol. I have had a blood test and been to see doctor who appeared to rule out gout or RA but said that my white blood count was high along with another indicator suggesting some sort of infection. I do not feel unwell or have a temperature or rash. He then said to wait another week have another blood test and see if they were still high and he would do something. It has been a very painful week and the tablets appear to do very little. I am going back tomorrow to get results but I am not hopeful of a diagnosis. Does anyone have any thoughts as to what it could be?
