    Thanks for the replies guys,

    Sweetest.x.Sin -- no, my hands/feet are not cold /clammy, unless im in a cold room (but thats normal ,right?)

    Rainygal -yes, that has happened to me at times- fingers swelling after running/ walking for a long time. -- but the thing is it happens even when i havent done any such activity. eg. im sitting at the table studying and my feet/hands are swollen .

    DanielIvtsan - i cudnt find anything about clubbing of fingers on the wikipedia - so i dunno - but looking looking at the symptoms that have been listed for the fluid retension thing, - thankfully they dont match mine- so it cant be that.

    Jamie -i know that i should probably go during one of these flare ups, but the thing is- whenever it happens, due to some reason or the other im not able to go.
    eg. the car is being fixed, etc...

    and plus what "kind" of a doc will i have to see anyway? a g.p.? or something?
    Your GP is who you would see. And if they felt it needed more expert hands then they would refer you on to the appropriate person. (in this case would be a rheumatologist). But GPs can handle most non-acute things themselves really.
