I have made appt at docs but couldn't get one to fit until week on Friday......

Here are my boring symptoms

Since coming back from Spain have had

All over body itching but no real rash
Awful aching joints esp wrists which I think are a bit swollen.

I feel like an old woman! My slight concern is that there is a big history of early onset rehumatoid arthritis in my family.

I know you can't help, just moaning........

You can get achy joints with some viruses.
Sounds rotten.
