I am a 39 yr old female. I have had pain in my thumbs for about 3 years now that I have just chalked up to arthritis begining.
I am in extreme pain most of the time now.
My symptoms are
fatigue, severe anemia, bone pain in my upper arms, upper legs, hips, big toes (weird huh lol).
After my last set of bloodwork the dr said it is not rhumatic, and not arthritis.
He also said I had some target cells which is abnormal.
Over the past 2 weeks my pain has become extremely worse. I went for more bloodwork wednesday....nine vials...yuck!
I suppose he will call me when the results get in, the nurse said some of the tests could take 4 or 5 days to do the testing on it.
So does noyone have any idea what it all could be?
