This is fist time I've posted here, I don't have a confirmed diagnosis yet but my first hospital appointment with Rheumatologist is on Wed 1st Feb.... I'm abit unsure what to expect.
I think I'm in something like a flare up as I've been in terrible pain for a couple of months... feet, hands, shoulders and elbows.. I am currently taking 500mg Naproxen twice a day with paracetamol in between... blood test from GP was pasituve for Rhematoid Factor, but I don't know what that means. I should also mention these symptoms have been off and on for quite a while i.e. Pain in feet or hands etc but never all together like this... that is why I went to GP to ask if it maybe RA.
I'm quite scared for what the future might be... I'm 54 and work full time been struggling these past couple months....
Any advice most welcome
