I have a connective tissue disorder called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. I also have Migraines. I have recently developed severe pain and swelling in the joints of my fingers, wrists, shoulders, knees, ankles and feet. I normally only have issues with my hips due to subluxations I have had there. I have also had three different antibiotics prescribed in the last 3 months. I had cervical strep, inner ear infections in both ears, and swollen lymph nodes under my arm. I had blood work 4 days before the lymph node swelling started and it was standard cbc blood panel and liver panel. My liver enzymes are within normal limits as well as my cbc. I take naproxen, depakote, xanax, neurontin, flexeril, medrol pack and vicodin. I still get no relief from the pain in my joints. The doctor said he doesn't know why I am still experiencing the pain and swelling. help please!
