Ok I am going to sound like a baby but it hurts and I am at a loss on where to go from here. I have had sever joint pain and numbness for years. It is steadly getting worse. I have had ANA, arthritis panels, ect. done and all are neg.
I was sent to a neuro for a nerve sensitivity test and (it hurt like ***l) he said my reaction time was at (on my hands) right- 47 secs and left- 32 secs. He said most people reaction time is 3 sec.
But where do I go from here? I live in a small town and dont have insurance.
One doctor I went to thought I might have Lupus but with no insurance he would not "officially" diagnose me for fear of never getting insurance.
I live on 4800 mg. of Iburpfen daily to help me "deal" with it but I know that is not to good on my liver. Any suggestions would be great. Thank you.
