Hi, I'm new to this. I have recently been experiencing symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, it started in December with joint pain and stiffness in my fingers. It has since moved around my body into my elbows, shoulders, knees, ankles and feet. I had an emergency appointment with a gp as the pain got unbearable, I had all the usual blood tests done but all came back negative. I seen a gp I have been seeing for a while and she has organised a xrays of my hands and wrists as my fingers are showing deformities. I have also asked about having a anti-CCP test but nothing has come of it yet. I'm almost 28, I have a 4 year old daughter that I can't play with, a son due in April which I've been advised to sit down while holding him. I have dropped quite a few things since my symptoms started which I have found a bit degrading. I'm hoping that the xrays show something cause the pain and stiffness is getting unbearable.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
