I was on top of everything else diagnosed with arthritis in my feet right ankle knee and hips, lower back, neck, left hand side shoulder and elbow both hands and wrists. When this started i only had arthritis in my hands knee and ankle and feel this has happened very quickly.
and my 92 year old moms favorite thing to say to me is "well i dont hurt like that and your only 56. those days part of me would like to give her just a portion of this crap for a couple hours so she knows how it feels
I have thyroid problem as well. I take 112 mg of levthyroxine they had to up my dosage it seemes like every 6months to a year
I just posted nearly the same question. I had minor arthritis, now it has gone all over in less than a year it is osteoarthritis but just the same, on top of fibro and bursitis and tennis/golfers elbow....I feel wiped out! What did your rheumatologist say and how are they treating you?
Yes!!!! It's the same for me . My rheumatologist diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis about a year after being diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I now have to give myself a shot once a week. I know how painful it is. It started and progressed fast. I hope that you get to feeling better soon.
Hey, I'm sorry I don't have any answers but I do know how awful this illness can be. I get a lot of wrist pain - the bones ache and throb like something is gnawing on them. I also get pins and needles and numb areas of skin. Do you see a rheumatologist? I only had two appointments with mine - one to diagnose and the other to tell me there is nothing they can do so to follow it up with the GP. Luckily I found a local pain management group but I had to find it on my own. My only advice is to read all you can of fibro and arthritis and try to find a pain management service or clinic. I hope that helps a little? Stay Beautiful xSx
