The pain and swelling is now in both hands. I had a carpel tunnel test and it said, I have it In my left which is the worse and nerve damage in the right. My knuckle's swell and hurt mostly In the morning. I can't make a fist on either hand. Not just one specific knuckle hurts, its all of them. The
ones near my fingernails on the right seem to be worse. I'm still waiting to see a Dr. Anything to eàse my mind.
I had a lot of hand swelling when I was first diagnosed.
It wasn’t until I was put on hydroxylchloroquine. I hope you see your rheumatologist soon.
Take Advils gel caps they help me I’ve taken up to 4 not saying you should. Also if you can get some THC it helps by relaxing the body and mind. Again it’s what can help me from time to time

Celebrex did nothing for me, my GP had tried that after the Meloxicam stopped working but then it was discovered this was RA and OA and Celebrex did nothing for the RA. My wrist and thumb hurt me also on my right hand. After x-rays my rheumatologist said it showed definite signs of RA. I hope you find relief. I actually just saw my rheumatologist and he is now only seeing me every 6 months due to my improvements. Still taking the meds but not having to see him every 3 months is a blessing.
My first diagnosis began with my wrists. I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel and scheduled for surgery. I kept asking how I could go from a zero to a 10 in carpal tunnel over night. No one answered that question.
The day before I saw the surgeon, she said I didn’t have carpal tunnel at all.
Three months later I received a definite diagnosis of RA.
