awe...so sorry. i hate wrist pain & swelling.
have you been applying some cool packs or ice packs gently to your wrists at all? that may help some edema subside.
definitely do not wear a watch!
my wrists are not swollen all of the time...but i can tell when they are, it ain't pretty that's for sure.
hmmm? June??? well, i hope May goes by real fast so you can see your doc.
the swelling just might be a part of the RA...an unfortunate part, but perhaps they can find a way to ease it.
the RA nodules are proably a BIG PART of why they are swollen.
((((((((((hugs))))))))) we're all in the boat with ya!
