I can’t find anyone with the same experience as me. First, I have my first Rheumatologist appointment in 2 weeks. I’ve dealt with hand weakness and occasional morning stiffness for years. Then last month an individual knuckle hurt. It hurt for 2 days. Stopped hurting, and then another single knuckle hurt. It was like the pain was jumping. As one joint felt better another one began to hurt. It moved between my knuckles and wrists on both hands, but much more on my right hand. I had no RF. Everything was normal in blood tests except for my sedimentation showing a small amount of inflammation. This jumping pain, anyone experience it?
My joint pain is currently limited to my hands and wrists. But the pain has an odd pattern. Only one joint/knuckle hurts at a time. When that one feels better another one becomes red and tender. Hurts to the touch, slight swelling. The pain seems to jump from joint to joint in my hands. I haven’t found anyone else with this symptom. My appt with the rheumatologist is in 2 weeks. Bloodwork showed no RA factor, normal in everything else, sedimentation shows slight inflammation.
