Last Saturday I woke up and both my hands were swollen, so much so that I had to remove the rings in my right hand.
They settled down after a few hours but one knuckle in the right hand is still tender and slightly larger than before.
The day before I had to stand on a bus journey for about 30 minutes or so holding on to the rails (the driver was more than a little enthusiastic!) and I remember thinking that I’d suffer some Ill-effects as a result.
I suppose the thing worrying me is the possibility that it’s RA.
I’ve read of a link with Hashimotos.
