I have had joint, muscle and rib pain for the past 7 weeks now and my doctor suspects Still's Disease.

My symptoms are:
1. High blood cell count
2. Some muscle pain
3. Sore throat
4. CRP - high
5. Liver enzymes - high
6. Joint pain
8. Night sweats
9. Tiredness

I do not have the rash and high fevers. Do you need these 2 symptoms to have stills disease?

What are your experiences with Stills Disease if you have it?

How to cope with it as it seems to be quote debilitating and scary for a beginner like me IF I DO HAVE IT.

Do you know anyone who has it and how are they coping?

Thank you for your response!
