For the past couple years I have had numerous tests, blood, xray, MRI and I've been to a rheumy, a pain doc, a neurologist and my primary. Nothing has ever shown up in any of my testing other then two bulging/slight herniated discs in my neck. My hands, hips, sciatic, sacroiiliac joint and knees always seem to be hurting. My fingers got to a point where they were swelling up and I couldn't bend my fingers. I then went to my primary again and she finally agreed that I have arthritic issues but she couldn't tell me which one other then osteoarthritis in one finger (the joint is beginning to get misshapen). I KNOW that something isn't right but until the tests show something conclusive I don't feel that the docs are taking it seriously. I already have one auto immune disease and I'm on an immune suppressing medication and I feel that it is slowing the progression of whatever it is that I have. But in the meantime, I am currently taking Tylonel Arthritis in addition to odd dosing of Celebrex. I know it's frustrating for sure.
