It doesn't hurt and I can still flex the thumb
I have had a history of autoimmune activity. Diagnosis was Fibromyalgia, possibly a mild form of lupus. I don't take any medications. I am very stiff in hip and back area but I think it's coming from muscles. My tests for rheumatoid arthritis were normal. At times I have had a little stiffness in my thumbs.
If I decide to wait and not go to the doctor, can it lead to something serious. I have to pay for my office visits.
