:confused: My hands became very painful approx. 3 mo. ago w/partial loss of flexion of fingers and total loss of thumb flexion bilat. All bloodwork to date is normal (chems., sed rate, hemo., etc.) Very slight response to three week course of prednisone and continued nsaids. Mild/moderate face edema and bilat hand edema began approx. one month ago. I am a middleage female in otherwise good health. What's happening???
