This may sound like a weird question, but I was fine until I broke my right wrist at the beginning of March, and even whilst still in plaster started to have stiffness and pain in the fingers of my right hand. Since the break has healed the stiffness and pain have remained, and this has now spread to the other hand, my toes (especially the big ones), knees, elbows and shoulders.
The physio refused to touch me any more and referred me back to the fracture clinic, who said the bone had healed fine and there was nothing more they could do.
My GP has now referred me to a Rheumatologist, and says he now feels the broken wrist was a red herring and he suspects I may be in the very early stages of RA or some other inflammatory disease.
I was just wondering if anyone else had ever heard of RA being triggered by this sort of thing, as my physio did hint that things can be triggered if they are already lying dormant.
