Does anyone have any ideas on what could be the cause of the following?
25 year old female, 5ft6", 125 lb, non-smoker, non-drinker, no eating disorders. Within last 3 months has developed bilateral knee pain and swelling. Can't sit for more than 10 min. Has had lot of cavities, root canal within last month (brushes at least 2x daily, flosses, uses water pik, teeth cleaning 2x year). Within last two weeks has developed high blood pressure (168/98) and high pulse rate (113). Has also developed white big and middle toes on one foot. Has black ridge lines in some toenails. All labs come back normal. EKG normal. Has history of minor elevated HGB on some prior tests. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
