Went to the Doctor's yesterday. New Doctor, my old one could not keep his practice and moved his family back to Virginia. Have to say, I really like him. He took his time, talked to me, has a personality too. My right arm has been giving me a lot of problems for a while now, but it got to the point where I could not take the pain, could not open doors, pick up stuff that finally made me go. I also noticed another node on my first knuckle. To start, I will need a blood test, its to see/confirm I have Rheumotoid Arthritis. In a month will have a full physical (which I can't remember the last time I had one). He is also putting me on a mild medication for the swelling. If this does not help, then will have xrays, MRI done. I am so glad he also treats for back pain, so maybe now will get some help.
Hope everyone has a safe and great weekend!!!!!
