Hello I've been having odd pains in my body that are moving around. Started about November time. I went out for a walk. Fairly long one. The next day I felt foot pain. It felt as though I had a large pebble under foot. I assumed I'd injured my foot some how and soldiered on for a few days. Then the same appeared in the opposite foot which I found odd. Carried on and put it down to age I'm 47 btw.This continued right through to new year but I was still working so although uncomfortable it was bearable. In January I woke one morning to terrible shoulder pain. I couldn't lift my arm and struggled all day with pain. I assumed I pulled something.The next day it was worse..third day I felt improvement. Forth day the opposite arm began hurting and this progressively got worse than the first arm/shoulder.This lasted approx one week. I still had the foot pains waxing and waneing.The sides of my big toes became sore and one small toe and the front top of my foot felt hot looked red and a sort of itch sensation. Finally I went to Gp who seemed a bit uninterested. Maybe he's had a bad day. He said he'd do a blood test. I week later I had a follow up. He said my results pointed to rheumatoid arthritis. Can't remember what the test was called. I was shocked. He said I'd get an appointment to see a Rheumatologist . That was a week ago. Since then all these symptoms have lessened. My feet are slightly sore but not too bad. My shoulder is fine. My hands look a little sore red on three knuckles but only a slight ache. I'm confused??? I would of expected the pains to get worse not almost disappear. I keep thinking it's a mistake. Also I've lost a little weight but not too much. I've been tired but then again I've been worrying. Any thoughts or opinions appreciated.???
