I recently dx with FMS. I told my neutrology dr that I'm having problem with my joints. Sometimes they can be painful or dull aches. They can be really stiffs or feel like they were swollen. Some day they are okay but they hurts more when I'm using them more. Well, Since I'm deaf, ASL is only way I can communicate with.. For you people who dont konw what ASL is, its America Sign Language. Basically, I have to uses my hands to sign. Sometimes Its achy when I used it. Couple days ago, my joints was little bruises on my fingers, and my knuckles.. However they are not hurt, but they were swollen, feel like stiff at that very same day. Is that sign for RA? I'm still new at this... I really need to find RA dr to talk about the treatments for my FMS. The problem is that the doctors haven't test me with blood works since a year or two. I prop should request them to run blood works to make sure its fine. For you who have RA, what was it like? What was the signs if you do have it? Thanks!
