I've had severe joint pain for about 3 weeks. It came on all of a sudden and was crippling for about a week but has since been (very) gradually reducing. (I have had mild joint pain on and off for about a year)
This time it started in my middle pointing finger and that wasn't too bad I thought I had sprained it. One knee quickly followed by the other and that was agony I couldn't really walk or stand up or bend or straighten my legs fully.
Then it seemed every few days the pain would move (always in my knees) but ankles for a few days then wrist then toes. And random rashes appearing.
After a fight with the Doctors and the threat of a complaint I finally got to see a good Doc who spent time with me and they think it's Rheumatoid arthritis and made me a referral after blood tests and gave me stronger pain killers.
Anyway I am just happy that I have some kind of explanation now.
It was really worrying me and getting me down.
I have a few questions if someone wouldn't mind answering
Is the pain moving around usual?
At the worst part of pain in the knees it felt like I had no strength in my knees at all.
Is it normal for the bones to feel like they are.. bruised and tender for a while after the main pain has gone.
