I was diagnosed with R A two weeks ago my blood tests show I have a severe case, I am taking Plaqeunil 400 mg daily, my joint pain showed that it is going to be slow in progressing. I was diagnosed with iron defiency anemia last year, and have been having joint pain in my wrists,knees, and ankles for about a year, but now I have swelling and pain in one knuckle on my right hand, and my ankle has been getting real stiff at rest and hurts but not swollen, I am very confused can some one help me clear some of this? Anyone having or had the same symptoms?
