As a child I was diagnosed with Rheumatic Fever, spent most of my childhood "bedfast" bedside teacher and all. I am 58 now and off and on (mostly on for the past few years and during my child bearing years have suffered from joint pain, low grade fever, chills and basically feeling like I've got the flu, just yucky. Sometimes it's worse than others, once I itched for four months, once I lost my voice and was so weak I really thought I was dying. Dr. gave me some kind of pill that I remember my mm taking for her Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have tested positive twice for the ANA antinuclear antibody associated with Lupus and was told I did not have Rheumatoid Arthritis.
