Hi. I'm a 31 yr. old female. I started having pain in my feet after rising 3 years ago. Then my thumb joint closest to the palm just stopped working and is always sore. I have pain in my T1 area, with muscle aches equal and bilateral. I can't sit for long due to pain in my tailbone.

On really bad days, my entire body (joints and muscles) feel like I've been in an accident. This usually happens for 2-4 days in a row, then not for several weeks.

On not so bad days, only the above seem to bother me. Over the past 3 years, I've experienced a large increase in migraines, especially in the left eye. 6 months ago I was diagnosed with ocular migraines, as I will temporarily lose sight in my left eye prior to the onset of the headache pain.

I recently went to the rheumatologist and had blood work done. All tests were normal, except for the C-Reactive Protein, which was extremely elevated at 24.9.

I was given a preliminary diagnosis of Polyndromic RA or Spondyloarthritis. After reading online, I'm not sure I fit these diagnoses. Does anyone have any ideas?
