|At this point, despite the pain, my hands look fairly normal. I can detect the swelling in the joint at the base of my right index finger (the hand on your left) but most other people would not be able to notice it.|
I went to see the doctor about the aching and throbbing in my fingers and the very strange lumps visible under my skin in the palm of my right hand. These are very telltale symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and, of course, there are many others.
I'm not sure when the appointment will be made with the specialist, I just know that it could be as much as six weeks from now. So, in the meantime, I want to try to find natural remedies and see if I can't control many of the symptoms myself.
I'm sharing all this so that if anyone else out there can offer suggestions or learn something from my experience, we can all benefit.
