OK so for the past 2 years i have been in and out of the doctors office with continuous swelling of the joints,under buttcheeks,and sides. More recently i have had rashes appearing on my neck and chest, headaches,and stomach issues. At first they though i had a kind of arthritis but now they are looking out of that and doing more research. My swelling usually lasts about a day and then will go away but then it seems to move to another location. I might have no swelling at all for a week but again it will show up. When i do swell it begins with a red painful spot which then expands into a welt and is very hot to touch. After it goes down it remains painful for a while but eventually all symptoms go away. Now with the bowl situation, i have always had stomach problems. Last summer i had surgery to remove endometriosis from my uteris and while my doctor was doing this surgery he noticed that my intestines were swollen and infamed. Could this have anything to do with the swelling that is occuring in my joints and other parts of my body? Ive had many blood tests for different things, but nothing has shown up yet.... the doctor did mention something about certain diseases being able to hide in your system and it can take many blood tests for it to show.

If anyone has any advice or knows anything about these symptoms, please respond back with me! . THANKS!
