About 3 weeks ago I had a sore elbow - thought it was from working out. By the weekend, I could not move it with tears. Then, woke up stiff and could not even walk up stairs. Pain moved into hands, fingers, feet, ankles and knees. My ankles started swelling and burning last week, so I went to the doctor. My sed rate and globulin was high, but my ANA was negative along with my rheumatoid factor. Yesterday I was achy, hot, miserable like the flu. (I had the flu shot 2 months ago) Went to see her again and she gave me a steriod pack. today feel much better, but ankles are still very swollen and warm. Please help! I don't want to be told I have fibromyalgia, but don't know what else it could be. She is also checking me for lymes dz and rocky mountain spotted fever, but I have not been anywhere where ticks would be and I don't have any inflammed rash or bite, that test will take a week to get back!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
