Can Carpel Tunnel React Like RA?

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

For those of you with seronegative RA, what is you C reactive and SED rate? Mine are elevated, but not off the charts like a lot of you. What medicine did they start you on first?
