I have Rheumatoid Arthritis...
In reply to Picture Lady, Apr 28, 2014

My RA isn't bad in my fingers as of yet, it's the worst in my feet. I've been through Plaquenil, Methotrexate, Enbrel and currently taking Humira Injections. Unfortunately none of these meds have worked for me. I didn't find the 'right' doctor soon enough to catch it when it could be treated effectively, and I saw so many different types of doctors.   ):

Please see a Rheumatologist ASAP and make sure they do an Anti-CCP blood test as well as the Rheumatoid Factor. The CCP test is highly specific for Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Since misery loves company, there are many forums for RA suffer's. This is one I visit frequently: www.dailystrength.org/c/Rheumatoid-Arthritis/support-group.

For your camera, I second the vote for an Olympus OMD-EM10 or their more affordable EP5 or even E-PL5.  You can control nearly all camera control settings from the fastest touch-screen shutter response available.

Good Luck and hopefully a future with painfree days!
