Since childhood I have had really bad joint pain and stiffness. I was constantly diagnosed with issues such as plantarfaciitis, severs disease, under developed back muscles among other things...They always tested me for arthritis and all that jazz but the blood work as always pretty normal.

Enter late teenage years where I had first and under active thyroid levels and then a year later over active and now nothing. I also was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis but am currently in "remission" yet still have g.i. issues.

Early 20's(now) I have horrible muscle and joint pain that I have constantly been back and forth to the doctor for and ultimately no lab work would show anything but severely low vitamin d levels. Sometimes it hurts to even walk. If I am sitting for 30 min or more and in the moring I have to hobble for a little while because my feet kill.


I started getting swollen armpit glands for no known reason for almost a year off and on with no answers..Now for the last 8 months all of a sudden my right ear will turn FIREY red and feel like it is going to explode. At this time my cheek also turns red and hot. I must note that the ear itself does not hurt to touch however. This will happen for hours and go away. Sometimes it wont happen for weeks and sometimes it happens 5 x a week. My whole ear turns red. the lobe cartilidge..everything.

I have fatigue as well which I am being treated for Fibromyalgia right now considering they arent sure what's going on.

I got some more blood work done ( i have a ton every few months) This time my ANA levels were very high anf I have not got the rest of the results.

Does any of this crazy stuff happen to any one else? Im sick of being in pain and scared that this unknown thing is happening to me

Please help.
