Hi all, as some of you already know my probs may or maynot be RA. Today is one of my tired days. During yesterday all my joints started hurting, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, knees, ankles and feet. Well I wouldn't really call it pain it's more of a bad ache type pain.Except for a couple of fingers which are quite tender. No swelling except my ankles which never quite go down these days. I feel incredably tired, even my teacup feels too heavy to hold. I'm still smiling thanks to Julie's blog.
Yesterday I took everyones advice and rang the rheumy nurse, she's promised to find my results out and get back to me. I've been thinking about that though, I had all my tests bloods, xrays and full bone scan at the beginning of June surely the Rheumy would have checked the results as they came in and if they were pos would have contacted me. So I would think no news is good news, always the optimist that's me. Maybe my probs are menoausal with perhaps a bit of OA. I know lots of women do get joint pain and fatigue during the meno and are often refered for RA tests too.
Hope everyone has a good day Babs xx
PS can some explain what would be classed as a flare up. I've heard RA effects joints in two's ie both hands, during a flare up would you expect both hands to be the same. Both my hands are effected even the same fingers are the worst on each hand but they don't flare up the same. Like the other week, I couldn't use my left at all, my right was painful but not as bad. Is this the same for others. Hope this bit makes sense to someone. xx
