Hi Damagedgoods,

Your symptoms cetainly sound like they could be some form of RA, the only way to find out is to see a Rheumatologist, then the Rheumy can run the appropriate tests for a diagnosis.

My AS started with hip and lower back pain and is now affecting my neck.

I do get swelling and tenderness in joints, like you mentioned, but I think that may be due to my Crohn's Disease.

I would make an appointment with a Rheumy and take your list of symptoms and concerns with you and keep pushing till you know whats wrong with you.

Good luck and let us know how you progress.

Jo

PS - your signature at the bottom appears to be more than 10 lines, do you think you could cut it back to ten - thanks Jo

Hi Damagedgoods,
My Mother has a cleaning business too and I help her out once or twice a week (depending on how Im doing healthwise). Its very hard work but does help keep me active and is a good form of exercise for me.
Hope you dont overdo itsmile
Hopefully you can get into a Rheumy soon and get some relief from your pain.
Re: your signature - Im not sure if its the way my computer presents your post that makes it so long - you are not in troublesmilewinkgrin Im only new at this moderator business so bear with me and I will check to see if its just my font size that makes your signature too long or that it needs cutting back - no dramas  - dont worry, as I said you are not in trouble.
Hope you have a great weekend.

It's all right; you're not in trouble. It's just that it costs a lot of money to store longer signatures, so it's important to keep them less than ten lines long.

The moderators are normally pretty quick to notice long sigs and ask people to shorten them, but we've all had a lot going on lately so you may have slipped through without anybody noticing. Don't worry, though; it's not a huge problem; we'd just appreciate it if you could make it a bit shorter.

You might like to get rid of the bold print (which uses more space) and then condense a few lines, and that will get you back under ten lines.

I've taken the liberty of drafting a new version for you. How's this?

You might be able to remove a little bit more, if there's something you don't think is too important, and shorten it still further.

I can't believe you spent twelve months in hospital! What a horrible time you've had.
