Hi...I haven't been diagnosed yet but have an upcoming apt. My symptoms are finger joints swollen at times, hot a few tines, and continually achy. I have weak, clunky shoulder, elbow, and finger joints. My knees are achy. Second left toe gets extremely stiff and painful. I have pain when standing first thing in morning in feet. My heart tends to beat irregularly and faster, breathlessness when going up steps, with some days so tired all day. My GP has me on Celebrex. Does this help anyone else because it seems to give me some easier days but not always. After reading so much, I'm very concerned about even finding out IF I have RA. My symptoms don't sermon as severe as many others. My hands get so bad I don't want to use them, though I'm still able to turn knobs, tie shoes, button buttons, etc. what do I need to know for my first Rheumatology visit? Does this sound like RA? Does Celebrex help if it's RA?
