I posted a couple of weeks ago about migratory joint pain, stiffness and pins and needles, but no visible swelling.
I saw a lovely rheumatologist but found it a little frustrating. But I go back in a few months after some tests.
I didn't really get an opportunity to talk in detail about my symptoms. She thinks I have carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands and has given me wrist splints.
She said she doesn't think it's systemic but has ordered anti CCP test and sent me for ultrasound of my hands. She also wants a nerve conduction test, I think, to see if I need surgery for the CTS.
I've been suffering with the pain and stiffness for eight months now. This is massively affecting my ability to enjoy myself and stay mentally well.
If my blood tests and ultrasound are normal - highly likely - where does this leave me? I can sort out the wrists but it means more delay dealing with stiffness and pain elsewhere.
This is just a whinge really as I'm a bit fed up.
