I started feeling bad a little over a month ago. Woke up one morning with a swollen left wrist and very sore middle left finger. Went to the doctor she did x-rays and blood work thought it was possibly tendentious. Next morning woke up and could barely walk. Went back to the doctor she did more test. Thyroid was high (14) which I battle with all the time. Changed that medicine. Next day woke up better and went back to work. The following day I was down again and ever since the joint pain in both feet and hands is awful. Some days I hurt less but lately I hurt more and more. Son is getting married in October had to go find a dress.… Thought getting out my do me good.. Tried on one dress and shoulders have killed me for days. My regular doctor has done all test including testing the vitamin d and b valley fever and rheumatoid all normal. I see a rheumatologist tomorrow. I have now developed a sore throat and have trouble opening my mouth wide. I am SCARED to say the least. I am currently on state disability and all I do is sleep. Does this sound familiar to anyone?:mad::confused:
