For the last year and a half I have been having joint inflammation and pain. Sometime certain joints swell and are red and hot to the touch and painful and sometimes they are just swollen and hurt. It's always on both sides. I am always tired , and can't seem to stay healthy for long- I'm always getting whatever cold or bug goes around lately and normally I don't. OCR 2009 I was in the hospital for a week with many extremely swollen, red, painful joints, and a huge full body rash that almost looked like a burn. I was tested for lupus then and it was negative, and I was tested again just recently and it was Negative. Theyconsidered Stevens johnsons when I was in the hospital because of what the rash looked like but ended up telling me they didn't know why I was so sick. My platelets have been up for a while also. Any idea what this could be or what tests I should ask for? I don't feel like I'm getting any answers and I'm sick of feeling sick. Help!
