Have just had 2 fairly good days wont say I was painfree but was less stiff and slept abit better but just had a dreadful nights sleep with pain and stiffness in hands. Thanks for your answers to my question on Rheumatoid factor. Only 2 weeks now till see Rheumy and hope to get a diagnosis. Then can get on with some treatment. Feels good to find this site can see how you are very supportive of each other and dont feel bad sounding off as you all in same position. folks at home dont always understand when you cant peel the potatoes.
