I saw a private rheumatologist last night who thinks my PMR has turned into RA. He has taken me off my steroids totally to see what happens, I was taking 4mg. This morning I woke up and my hands were swollen and very sore but I’ve been moving around for a couple of hours now and the swelling is subsiding. I’m not sure whether to see the rheumatologist today, as he told me to see him if the swelling came back, it’s nothing like it was before. Could my PMR have turned into RA? Who knows.
This is when they first started swelling, not as bad as this today
