Hi, just been told that I probably have rheumatoid arthritis! Massive unexplained flare up, swollen joints and excruciating pain. Saw my gp 4 weeks ago, he said it was just muscular and to stop googling my symptoms, said I was silly to think it was anything other than muscular...eat your words Mr useless!
Anyway, was given a steroid injection in the bum last night at AAU, nothing has happened yet? Does anyone know how long it takes before the pain relief kicks in and the swelling subsides please?
