For about a month I have had very bad pains in my wrist. They feel very weak. I can not open a fruit snack package for my children or open a bottle. They are not numb just really weak. My index fingers also feel stiff and achy. I think they look puffy or slightly swollen. I can bend them most of the time.

I go back to Rheumy in Feb. Any thoughts?

Hello! I haven't gone to the doctor for it but I understand where your coming from I feel the same way I think it's something with Arthritis. Sometimes I'm so weak I can't open. Something for my child also. It can be very frustrating sorry I'm not much help just wanted to say your not alone!

I've noticed I can't open jars like I used to.
I think it's due to the swelling in our joints from the lupus inflamation.
