I have had nasty flare ups in shoulders, knees, neck, wrists over the last six months, at the moment my hands are very sore and some of the tendons are pulling, and so are my feet and ankles. I have general aches in shoulders and knees. My GP diagnosed ra last weds after a strongly positive anti CCP test. I am worried as I have just had my appointment through and it isn't till July 2nd. I am not on any steroids yet, just ibuprofen. What do I do? Is that standard? Or do I need to try and go back to my GP in the meantime. Or should I pay and try and go earlier? I need advice please. Thank you. X
