I am a 36 yr old F. Arthritis is heriditary in my family & for the past 4 years I have been dealing with symptoms of it starting off mild in hips/legs & is now becoming fairly frequent. (They have determined I have ostio-arthritis, but not rhumatoid) It is quickly becoming more severe & affecting all my joints. When it strikes (usually about 2ce a year each attack lasting 2 weeks to a month. Attacks tend to come in sets of 2 *flair up, receed, flair up, receed*) This time it is not ending, just attacking in waves. I become very weak & fatigued, feel freezing cold even in 80+ degree weather, can walk only short distances (feet, not blocks) and become sensitive to being touched by anything. I also have mild hypoglycemia, migraines, underwent reconstructive knee surgery 3 months ago that is not rehabing well, have chronic insomnia, low bone density due to dairy allergies growing up, have had many fractures/sprains/injuries. Doc's are not able to figure out what this is. I was on morphine for the pain but could not function, so have switched to vicodine. Have been tested for all common causes but turned up negative. Any ideas or suggestions are appriciated.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
