I was very fatigued and just wore out in Jan, figured I had caught a bug. A few days into this, I started having bilateral elbow pain. Bad enough that I could not lift a gallon of milk without excruciating pain and weakness. This went on for a month before I saw my PCP. She did labs for RA which all came back normal. She prescribed me a steroid dose pack and meloxicam. She said if this didn't help she would send me to rheumatologist. The steroids helped the first day or so when it was a high dose. As the dose went down so did the relief. The meloxicam never helped. I am now having stiffness the morning where it takes me forever to straighten my arm. I have pain in both elbows, wrists, hands and my left big toe joint?
I have an appt with a rheumatology doc that specializes in seronegative RA. My appt is not until July unfortunately. Anyone with seronegative RA that can describe your early symptoms. What you do for relief?
