Just saw your post, hope you are feeling a bit better! Please don't worry about asking questions...I think I win the award for that one!! I wasn't thie one with the "pit pain" think that was our dear Yally. She'll be a long soon, and I'm sure she'll answer you..she's great at this. What you're describing sure sounds like RA stuff to me, though I've never had it in that area...as of yet. It has visited my shoulder, both of them actually, but not the others as of yet...sure my day will come HaHa! My doc is wonderful about letting me know to always call and ask questions if I have any concerns..can you call without going in?
Take care Raven, let us know how you are doing
