Well I'm 29 years old with a lovely husband and 2 young boys age 5 & 3 & half, I was referred from my GP just 4 weeks ago after numerous appointments with painful, stiff, swollen hands which now seems to have moved into my wrists also! X-rays of hands came back clear (great) RF came back at 640 titre and Anti CCP 0.6 ELISA. My appointment is tomorrow and feeling really nervous at the thought that no one is going to believe the pain I have, I have now what seem to be Nodules on both my ankles and 1 knuckle, i don't have much swelling so I feel I'm going to be fobbed off. I do have pictures of my hands when swollen & red and a little history of onset symptoms but reading some blogs etc that their Rheumatologist is quite rude/no proper assessment is making me feel sick I am 4 days smoke free now so I hope this helps me
