I'm new to this site and I've come for a bit of a moan. I was referred to the rheumatologist by gp with what they thought was RA. I am having pain in my hands, wrists, elbows, hips and knees but I'm not getting twinges in my ankles and jaw. The rheumatologist didn't seem to think it was RA from the examination and normal blood work but ordered a ultrasound of my hands. This happened a month later and it has shown inflammation around my finger and wrists joints/ tendons. This is where it has been left, I have no idea what this means. I've been told I'll get a follow up appointment but I'm in constant pain and the thought of waiting another month just to see someone is getting me so down.
Anyone got any experience of anything like this? Just don't know what to think thank you
