I have been seeing a Rheumatologist for a few years now. Several different dx's. Anklyosing spondylitis, RA, FMS, and so on. ANA is positive and SEd rate is slightly elevated. Painful joints, swollen and stiff fingers mainly after rest. In 2002 was hospitalized with numbness and eye pain on left side. Had Bells Palsey 9 years ago. Had JRA and a child. Muscle running down my back seems to be getting stiffer. Causing mid back and neck pain. I've had three low back surgeries for herniated discs. And that brings me to the lastest symptoms...strange sense of smell that wakes me from a sound sleep. It isn't always the same. Sometimes it smell like something is burning and other times like coffe that has sat out for a awhile. Now left ear is hurting and feels clogged. I need help and I give up the Doctors. Any thoughts?:(
