I have not had a confirmed diagnosis yet because all my testing came out negative, but I really have a feeling that I have RA mainly based on my symptoms. When I went to the rheumy, he checked all my joints, your doc
may order Xrays
and/or a MRI and do blood tests to find certain RA markers. It was a couple years ago that I went and I think after the first of the year, I may be going back to see him to be retested since things have gotten much worse for me. I hope you find the answers to your hand pain. I know the feeling of not knowing what is going on.
