I am a 30 year old woman. I have had one child and had severe complications while pregnant. My father has Wegener's granulomatosis, and I have been tested because of my symptoms on several occassions. My mother has arthritis and a thyroid condition.
I have arthritis and I am bipolar. These two things I am certain of. I cannot take NSAIDs because they make me have a very difficult time urinating and I swell, plus several muscle pain. Over the last few years, when I get sick, I get very sick. Last Thanksgiving I had been sick for 6 weeks, spent another 5 days in the hospital, and then took another 2 months to recover. They never did provide a "cause", just that I had some sort of respiratory infection.
I have always had very heavy 7 day periods, and bouts of "anemia". In the last year, my wear and tear arthritis has started turned my knuckles red and I have severe swelling in my joints, along with poor blood flow. My hands and feet are always like ice. However, I have started have such bad problems with free bleeding that I have even stopped testing my blood sugar because it takes a half an hour to stop bleeding from just a little stick.
I am tired, and going to the doctor has become pointless. If anyone has any ideas, my doctor and I are out. I will take any help with great appreciation.
