in 2008 I had my first sign my hands were swellen and red and hurt. Went to the doctor and he said you have RA, I had X-Rays and nothing was there. A few months later it happened again, nothing. This has been going on off and on so 7 months ago he did an RA and CRP blood work the RA was neg but the inflamation was very high. He thought I had Fribro. I did not think so. This has still be going on. I can not get out of bed in the mornings, can barley do my work, I ahve a very stressfull job. My whole body hurts now not just my hands. It is my toes, feet, ankels, legs, hips, back my elbos, my neck, my jaw, and my hands and fingers!! My doctor has told me that now I have RA and pu tme on Methotrexate?? Can you give me any information, please. I am in so much pain most of the day.
