For Several months and three doctors I am once again waiting not to see if I have RA. They thought that I had Hemochromotosis an iron over load because my ferritin level was 245 and liver enzymes were elevated along with sore red joints in boths hands and feet along with fatigue. Long story short my rhyumatologists now tells me to sit and wait 2 months. I have been on 2 different anti-inflamatories, pain killers twice a day and nothing is helping...my spmptoms are actually getting worse. I have lost 12lbs since my last doctors visit, my hand hurt much more and they get numb and tingling, I am always exhausted and if I eat one meal a day I am fine because I am just not hungry. My hands always feel hot to the touch. I just feel like I got hit by a mack truck and can take a morning, afternoon, and evening nap and no I am not depressed. I did email my doctor and he did not request to see me... Is this normal with RA?
