Hi! I get this too! Although, my hands don't get red I know they are swollen by how my rings fit. I do feel heat coming off of my elbow however, then my whole forearm starts throbbing. When it gets real bad, I slather on ben-gay. It sounds funny that putting heat on it would make it feel better, but it does.
I don't have a dx yet (just really strong suspicion, and a boss who is a retired rhuemmy), but my appointment is 7 days and counting; I have been waiting 6 weeks for this appointment, grrrr.
The weather we have been having lately (rain) has just been killing me!
