The new thing: I can feel the pulse in my fingers (from 2nd joint to tips) when I hold them or rest them on a surface.
I have had pain starting in my thumb progressing to all fingers but my pinkies. The pain is in my fingers above the knuckle joints going to the tip. It hurts all the way up, not just in the 2 outer joints of the fingers. My hands are also numb. They are not red. Slightly swollen. Gout ruled out (visual inspection only).
Pretty sure I also have a UTI right now if this is of consequence. When I called my Dr., they said I did not need to come in, but they are sending me for a urinalysis and am supposed to take Cipro when results are in. At least they are trying to help me...but....is it helping me?
Also strange pain on my Right Iliac Crest (hip bone), bad at the moment. Yep, and bad pain in my right flank (last xray showed I had 2 stones).
I just called them back and left a msg, asking them to also run some bloodwork...why not?...since I have to go pee in the cup anyway....I'll be at the lab.
Suggestions? If I get a hold of that lab slip....I'll just go wild and order a bunch of things. Why not? I pretty much just diagnosed myself FOR THEM!!!
But despite my sarcastic, annoyed attitude....what is really going on with my fingers? They are getting worse. Should I just get a ***n uric acid test run? Maybe it is gout. I have been trying to eat cherries.....just in case.
