I had no idea it was osteo arthritis let alone RA

My fingers started throbbing all of a sudden
I made an appointment thinking it was typing all day for several years.
an xray showed arthritis. So he did blood draw for RA
I was very surprised when I got a call saying it is RA and was referred to an RA doc. That was fall of 2002. 22years later my body has a meryad of RA all over
