I am seeing a specialist on Monday.Wendsday morning,I felt my right hand hurting and called my doctor.I was using my impact wrench to take off a lug nut.The finger I use to pull the trigger was stiff and it did hurt.It was on and off.Doctor said it maybe rheumatoid arthritis and made an appointment with an arthritis specialist.I did my research on this,not an old person's disease.Effects anyone younger in their 30s too.I am going to get answers which is good.If I have this,I am going to learn to live with this the rest of my life.
