See details: It is difficult to give you a specific answer without being able to examine your hands and the other areas involved. There are several possible causes but a first-hand exam and the results of tests should be able to give you a diagnosis and treatment. Hang in there until friday and your issues hopefully will then be explained. Good luck.

Swollen: By rheum i believe you mean rheumatoid arthritis and if so that is an autoimmune disease and can cause swollen joints, hands , face. See the rheum specialist on friday and let us know how it goes.
