Im just wondering if there are others out there who get all the painful joints, fatigue etc but very little swelling and redness? I belong to a few forums and frequently people post photos of very swollen feet or hands all angry and red. I do get swelling in my feet occasionally and most days in numerous fingers but its very minor and doesn't relate to the level of pain I feel.
Its early days for me, only a year and its not under control yet but I used to think I must be pretty mild as I'm seronegative with not much swelling. However this condition has become so debilitating over the past 12 months and i have terrible pain in hands,wrists, feet, ankles, shoulders etc. thst Im now thinking that im not as 'mild' s I first thoughand that the swelling is not necessarily an indication of the severity of RD. I am reading something about this very thing rght now n 'Rheumatoid Arthritis Unmasked' but wondered if there were others out there feeling similar? Would be good to here? Thanks
