I posted a couple of weeks back about the swelling hands, ankles, and pain I've been in. I've been dealing with for the last two months. Primary care doctor has eliminated things like Thyroid, Diabetes, and Potassium. He is pretty confident that I have RA, and I will be seeing a Rheumatologist next week for testing. I have always had very thick hair, and for the last few weeks it is falling out daily by handfuls. My hair is half the thickness that it was, and I'm heartbroken over it. I'm scared in the next few weeks that my hair is just going to be almost gone. I'm not on any medications that could cause this, and have read that it is common with RA. Has anyone else dealt with this?
