Within the last 3-4 months I have had episodes of pain in my both my thumbs, wrists, and fingers., When it first started, it would only last a few hours. Last week I had an episode that lasted three days. Thumbs and fingers hurt the worse they have in any prior episode. Defiantly noticed the pain more and the length of time increased. Fingers felt tight, and weak. By the third day, everything seemed to be almost completely better, with just some soreness left. I have an apt with my primary on Friday, but I was just wondering if it is normal between the episodes of pain, to not really have any pain?. Today everything feels normal with no pain or stiffness. I have probably had 3-4 episodes of the pain total. Do you think based on my symptoms it could be RA?
Thank you for any imput you can provide.
