Following my rheumatologist apt today where I spent 4 hours talking with 2 rheumatologists, having xrays and blood tests, mri scans to follow - the big boss thinks it's rheumatoid arthritis especially as there's restricted movement (30%) inflammation in my right knuckles and xrays show very limited space. Wants to see me again very quickly to get started on treatment. Not to worry he says. Well I'm sat here in xray dept still, crying. He was very thorough and very good at his job and I'm grateful. I'm just upset and shocked I think.
