Hi,
 
I've been sick with various symptoms for the past year or so. Diagnosed with hypothyroidism, IBD, and high blood pressure.  One of my symptoms is joint pain... well at least I think its joint pain.
 
I seem to get these "attacks" of pain in my wrists, knees, fingers, ankles and toes. The pain is sharp and shortlasting, and it moves around to the different parts of my body. I've read that arthritis pain is very personal, but I am still wondering if anyone has anything like this.
 
I have no swelling or redness. It does not bother me to bend the joints - just these attacks of pain that come out of nowhere and can last anywhere from an hour to days or weeks.
 
Thanks...

I just started reading about the PR. It seems that you can actually have reoccouring bouts of it and that it doesn't always cause swelling. I did find a forum, so I'm getting some good info from there.

Thanks for replying Yalinda... :)
