I truly believe i have RA and on hear i described my symptoms and was told the opposite. But it runs in my family with my moms side bad. With lupus also. I'm only 18 and my hand is getting worse i have my tendons sliding off thats pushing a bone out the side of my middle knuckle. Pain is becoming a real thing and my doctor even asked about my history, asking about lupus and ra. I have i blood check and meet up with doc in 5 days. What should i do to help the pain and inflammation?
