Doctors don't seem to be able to figure how what is wrong. Terrrific pain in the hands, elbows, shouders and sometimes ankles- swelling in those areas. Actually losing joints in the fingers- They swell and the joint burst open....also have regular high fevers accompanying these symptoms. The DR's have ruled out so many diseases but can't seem to zero in on this. No bone cancer-had a complete body bone scan. The DR's say they think it is viral, but??? I have viral meningitis about ten years ago. Please if anyone has any ideas...they would be appreciated... Thanks

It is all autoimmune- I had to wait to see the rest of my disease to figure that one out.Research on intestinal permeability or "Leaky Gut Syndrome".I am afraid your immune system is really ticked off.Have your protein checked. If your protein is high or if there is protein in your urine- you might have a hyperactive liver. This could also overflow the kidney with antigenic debris.Try to reduce your protein and fat intake.
