You may recall that wrist pain has been one of my main problems to date. But it had disappeared about 95% after a flare up in early Feb. Slowly but surely I'm getting pain again and this morning it's pretty lousy in my right wrist and achy in my left. But the location of the pain has changed. Before Xmas it was in the top of my wrists - right across the middle. Then it moved to the ulnar region on the sides of both and was equally bad on both sides. The last flare up was there. Now it's more subtle and is on the under side of both wrists - but much more pronounced on right wrist which I'm unable to move about this morning. Again the pain goes up into my knuckles but also is on the inside of my hand up into the pads of my fingers. It feels tingly like sherbert but my fingers are same as usual - bit swollen on the joints themselves and always very stiff in the mornings. My ankles are almost identical but the pain on both sides is on the bony outside parts although there's an ache into my toe pads.
When I told the physio that the underside of wrists were sore about 5 weeks ago when she last saw me - she looked puzzled and said that wasn't really where the wrist joint was so might be something else. Now I'm wondering if this is carpal tunnel rather than RA - and if so what should I do about it?
