I am an 35 yo RN who has been dealing with severe pain and swelling in my right wrist and middle finger for a few months now. When I get up in the morning I have almost no range of motion in my wrist. It takes me a hour or two to get where I can function.
I have been tested for everything from Lupus to Rheumatoid arthritis on several occasions and all tests have been negative.
I also developed a sensitivity to the cold.
The ironic part is my friend who lives around the block from me just started experiencing similar symptoms only its causing swelling in all joints.
Could this be an alergy, some type of poisioning or somthing else.
When I was on prednisone, the symptoms went away, but I cant be on such a damaging drug forever.
