I'm hoping for some help on this one.
I went to a Rheumatologist for the first time about a month ago.
She did tons of bld wk which all came back normal and no inflammation.
I went back to have x-rays of my hands, wrists, feet and ankles.
Nurse just called me back w/the results today - saying they are normal....adding that the Dr. said to call back and make an appt. if the symptoms come back.
I told her they have never went away!!
I'm going back to see her in a wk.
I'm really nervous about all of this.
To be completely honest, I've never been a sickly person, only consistant problems are sinus/allergies. As for mental issues I do tend to worry a lot!
I started having panic attacks 2 yrs ago and occasionally suffer from GAD. I have really been doing well:)
Just a little recap - I'm 34, female, 2 small kids, been having joint pain for 2 mos. - Mostly hands, elbows and ankles.
However, the first bout of pain was in every joint!
No family history of any type arthristis, lupus, fibro...NOTHING!
I hate to keep worrying about all of this - If this sounds familar to anyone, or if anyone has any insight to what this could be, please reply!
