I could really do with some advice.
A month ago I had what i thought was a virus- sore throat, mild fever, swollen glands, fatigue, conjuntivitis, dermatitis on my hands and I was breaking out in hives. Then I started getting pain in the joints of my fingers, hands and wrists. The other symptoms dissipated after about
a week but the pain in my hands continued and I now have pain in fingers, hands, wrists, shoulders, knees and feet. I have also been getting very itchy skin and occassionally breaking out in an itchy lumpy rash on my legs.
My family doctor put me on diclofenac and prednisolone and ran blood tests. The tests came back with an ANA of 1:640, the other tests were clear, negative for other indicators such as rheumatoid factor. I see a rheumatologist tomorrow.
What do you think? and what should I be asking the doctor?
