For about 2 years now I've been suffering with joint pain (particularly hands and knees). Fingers feel stiff and tight and its more difficult to make a fist. Had bloods done for rheumatoid factor in 2015 but negative. Was told to do 'physio' at home, seen Drs again after that failed to work and all said that I work too much etc (I only work 35 hrs/week).
Last week I couldn't sleep all monday night as I had a rash on my joints (toes, ankles, knees, hips, elbows and shoulders) and my fingers had swollen up like little sausages. Went to the doctors, they only had nurse appointments and she prescribed me antihistamines for a week. Week on the rash had gone but swelling of fingers, knees and ankles were coming and going. Today I went to doctors as they finally had an appointment available, no swelling currently but hands stiff especially since the swelling...she told me that I use my hands too much and I need to rest them ?!?! Is this not the most ridiculous thing ever??? She said this all smiley and I was on the verge of tears.
I feel like there must be something going on ? I'm only 22 but my body shouldn't be feeling like this!! :-(
