I do get red swollen hands but I attribute that to arthritis and MCTD. I do have
pain when they are swollen.
Saintsfan, I also take pictures to the rheumy. I think it is a great idea.....so many
times I've had swelling, rashes or lesions but they would be gone by my appointment. Having pictures is a great way to document symptoms.
Hope you both will find out what is causing the swelling. Sometimes meds can do
Fibromyalgia, MCTD (Lupus, Scleroderma & RA) Raynaud's, Osteoporosis,
Osteoarthritis, Degenerative Disc Disease, Migraines, and Hypertension
Prescription Meds: Savella, Cyclobenzaprine, Methotrexate, Diltiazem, Boniva,
Folic Acid. OTC Meds: Multi-vitamin. Vit, D, Vitamin B12 & calciim supplements
