I hsve been experiencing joint pain in my knuckles , ankles and toes for the last 2 years... at first it was only occasionally but the last 5 months it's been bad... I have now got raynauds ...I have seen my rheumatologist twice who gave me a steroid injection which took all my ankle swelling down and took my pain away .. this did only last for 2 weeks though .. I had some scans done today on my ankle and hands .. the radiographer said there's no irreversible joint damage to fingers!! There's inflammation in my wrist tendons though , my ankle has quite a lot of fluid and my big toe .... my right foot is now also starting to throb .... I also hsve developed sore red knuckles .... I'm due to see my rheumatologist again soon .. he's starting me on steroids ... any ideas anyone????
