Iam 38 years old who's quality of life is at a stand still. For about 3 years my knees started to become stiff, my primary said athritis in the knees here is celbrex & flexerill..Then about 2 years ago had a miss-carriage because of low progestrone levels and kness began to get stiffer..I exercised more too, took calcium and a mutli-vitamin...Now
1 1/2 yrs. too date my knees, hips and upper arms hurt. The muscles in my hips and knees are weak and having trouble walking...The pain in hips make it un-bearable to walk..Hospitalized got pain meds..sent home couple of days later. Had two MRI's Dr.'s say arthritis in hips and buldging disc in back...Prior to being hospitalized..Had several blood test, revealed sedimintation levels in blood very high..Diagnosed with RA even thought the factors did not reveal itself, on Humira for 2 months no change..Don't have RA typical systoms...Found Polymaylia Rhematic during a search about blood levels...Dr.'s say RA can wait to reveal it self..but for over a year. I have been tested for everything from cancer to lyme and more......Seeking more opinions and a specialty Dr.s/hospitals..thought I would also give this a try and see if some one else can tell me I am not crazy...Also why do progestrone levels keep staying/going low during pregancy..I want to expand my family with my husband.Help..........
