Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic, inflammatory, multisystem, autoimmune disorder. It is a disabling and painful condition which can lead to substantial loss of mobility due to pain and joint destruction.
Hi, today I went to see the Rheumatologist about my arthritis.
I was referred because my platelets level was raised and the Haematologist thought I might be suffering from RA.
After a thorough consultation and examination she said I have osteoarthritis and the middle joints of my fingers are swollen because of bone spurs.
So now I know what's going on
