Never get a diagnosis!
I'm a 52 year old female with 3 grown children and 7 beautiful grand children. I have very bad arthritis in my hands and some in my toes. The pain is in my fingers, knees, toes back and shoulder. I have never been diagnosed with RA although my mother and my sister were diagnosed with RA. We have lupus also that runs in our family. I'm really not sure if I have RA or if I don't! I know some days the pain in my hands and fingers are so bad I don't want to get out of bed. I make myself get out of bed daily cause I'm scared if I stop I will end up worse and won't be able to get up anymore !
