Hello All, AnnieRae here. Have not posted in a while. I have inflammatory arthritis and RA, (mild form of both) for two years. Have been taking Plaquenil for almost two years, and just 800 mg Ibuprophen as needed, a few flares here and there, but have manged fairly well.
My question is: My little finger on my right hand is losing color on the fingernail and is turning completely white, it is very tender on the first joint, swollen and a little inflammed, the nail is ridgy looks like it has little pin pricks in it. It also feels kind of numb.
My big toe on my right foot is also this way, but not as inflammed. I have gone to a podiatrist about my toenail, a culture was done on my toenail for fungus. Negative.
My appt with my Rheumy is not until July 30. I might go ahead and try to get in sooner, but it is very hard to do that.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this or have experienced anything like this? Your comments would be greatly appreciated. Thank you AnnieRae
There Is Always Hope
