Surprised at diagnosis
I'm 77 years old and have had sore fingers off and on for years but just lately the pain extended to my wrists so went to the Dr.. After all the blood tests, X-rays,and physical exam I got the diagnosis of RA. All of a sudden I also had a severe increase of pain and stiffness. I've only been on medicine for a week so don't have any decrease of symptoms yet.
When was your last flare?
