Pain Again

I'm currently experiencing a significant increase in pain and swelling in my wrist and arm. It's concerning to me that I've had two major flare-ups within less than a year after going several years without one. The swelling and muscle pain is exacerbated by things like typing. :) So...if my posts are brief or mainly consist of pictures, you'll understand why. I'm seeking care and hoping that it responds quickly and well - if not, I'm off to a hand specialist. It's quite discouraging for me - surgery has been discussed and I'd like to not go that route if at all possible. If you think about it, you can pray that it will improve. It really effects my ability to do simple, daily tasks like holding my kids, opening and closing things, etc.

I'm suffering from a pain flare up due to working out at the gym...doing sit ups. Ugh!
You take it easy.

Alaina, I'm so sorry to hear about this. I'll pray that you get some relief from pain and some non-surgery answers!
