Has anyone experienced at their rheumy appts to grip their rheumy's/nurses hands tightly?
Every time I go for my appts they always say this to me, so I do it then I'm told "oh yes you have a fine grip" when in fact I've just told them that my joints in my hands have been really painful and some of them swelling plus I'm dropping things more & more as do find it hard to hold onto things, particularly hair brushes, nail files, cutlery etc.
It seems that just because I can hold on to their hands firmly for a few seconds there's no problem!!
That really annoys me!!
I know when I go back in May and I tell them all the problems I've had with my hands they'll say this to me again....!!
