Rotating joint pain…

There has been a bunch going on, so I’m going to put things in separate entries.

I finally went to the doctor about my rotating joint pain.  Not that I wanted too, but it got that bad.  I’m looking back and I haven’t mentioned having rotating joint pain…  Honestly, I’m trying to figure out when it started.  I know it was at least a week before May 17.  It moved from joint to joint, never going to the same one twice, ending with taking out my entire left hand on May 17.  So, I went to have a blood draw, and they finally read the results today.  I have an elevated rheumatoid levels.  I also have scleritis in my right eye.  I was diagnosed with that on Thursday… That day my left knee started to hurt, and it was so painful by that night, it woke me up.

Needless to say, I’m falling apart.  I saw the rheumatologist today, and she doesn’t think I have rheumatoid arthritis (although I do).  She did another blood draw, looking for other inflammatory diseases, and I should get the results soon.  It’s scary, having this little baby to take care of, and losing joints on a regular basis.  I just hope we can figure out what is going on.

  1. Oh, I hope you’ll get a proper diagnosis and feel better soon! rheumatoid arthritis is not nice, especially when you have a baby to take care of…
