    Well I go see my rehuemy. today.She is concerned about my hands,wrists and forearms hurting and burning.It also hurts in my ankles and shoulders.Boy I hope I don;t have either one of them.RA runs in my mother's family and so does Lupus.I have a feeling today I will have to do some bloodwork.
    This is causing my depression to get worse.I use my hands so much.I am learning how to do beading and needlepoint not to mention working on my garden.This is really getting me down.
    Have any of you had problems like this in your hands and wrists?I am wondering if I will have to wear a brace.
    Well, I am done belly aching.Talk with everyone when I get back.
