It has been suggested to me by a few people I MAY have RA. I went to the doctors and he had a full blood count done and inflammatory levels checked. They all came back normal but I am suffering with pain in my joints. Mainly thumbs, knee caps and toe joints. I do have soft tissue growing on my big toe and apparently they don't know why!
Pain seems to be mild but sometimes feels relentless.
Thank you for any opinions or advise given on this subject
Just a short update, I do arthritis in my big toe and will need to find out if I have it in my thumbs.
I have had an injection in my toe but unfortunately it didn’t work even though I done everything possible 😕
Yes I was tested three times over a year, all bloods came back normal. I felt I was going mad as the pains I was getting was unbearable at times. In the end I insisted my GP referred me to a Rheumatlogist. I was diagnosed after an anti ccp blood test that I had aggressive RA . Scared the living day lights out of me but relieved to have a diagnosis. As I knew the pain I was feeling was not normal. You know your own body.
Thank you, I'm trying to get to the bottom of things and I know something's wrong I just don't know what x
