Hi. I'm a 30year old women. For the last 5-6years I will go through 1 to 3 days of mild to excruciating pain in my finger joints an knuckles (I have to.get my spouse to wash my hair it's so bad). It only.occurs every couple months. I mentioned it to my doctor and he told me that it can't be RA because RA doesn't affect some of the joints that are causing me pain...none the less he ordered blood work and he said all was clear and that was that. Thing is, I still get the pain and now in my knees and hips too. I'm concerned, auto immune disorders run in my family...and my GP does not seem to believe me.
