I posted this in another forum accidentally......My fingers have been swollen for a few months, some days worse than others. Yesterday it was so bad I had to go in today to have my rings cut off! I been having other weird symptoms. The other day the vein in my right wrist got so swollen it was thick and blue, it went away and left a bruise. I had a optic migraine and told its caused from poor circulation. I also been having visual problems, muscle pain, sometimes it even hurts to touch me, other times I just ache, stomach cramps etc... my doctor has run every blood test and cant find anything except I have thick blood called hughes syndrome and some markers for Lupus but claimed I need not worry ab out having it. I am about to lose my mind, not to mention weight gain that's been steady for past 4 years.. again nobody knows why, except they accuse me of parking in from of the fridge and eating all day.
Here are some of my blood results from 9 months ago.
