Yes, it does sound like a sign of RA when you are saying that your fingers are starting to curve in. Have you been checking up with your doctor or setting up any appointment with a rheumatologist? If you haven't, I suggest you to not delay treatment for RA. RA is crippling and once your joints are deformed, you cannot reverse the damages that have already been done.
