Joint Swelling

Hi all. I have a question for all you with fibro or lupus/MCTD. Can you have joint swelling, especially wrists, without pain? I've been tested for autoimmune and came back with positive numbers. The doc say it is mild. I know when I'm having a flare but today I noticed how fat my wrists and elbows look. And no pain! The test for inflammation came back high also (forgot the name of the test). Thanks for any feedback Linda

Re: Joint Swelling

Hi, NJLinda. Personally I associate inflammatory swelling with pain. I'm not sure whether it's ever present without pain, but I rather doubt it. I'd wonder about water retention (and why). Are there other areas that look puffy to you? I think I'd ask my doctor, as there's nothing to lose by asking. Take good care, my best always, Vee
