Hi guys, for the past month I have been on the hunt to find out what is wrong with me. I hope you can give insight while I wait for more dr appts
For the past 4 weeks I have had traveling pain that feels like its in my bones, but maybe its my joints. The pain can last an hour to 10 seconds. For example one nihgt my ankle hurt so bad like the bones were crushing that I could not walk, the next day it was my other foot and all toes..an hour later I was fine. I get pulsating pains deep in my spine, like a tooth ache and stabs in other places. The other day I was using my iphone a lot and my entire finger was in pain. On top of this my joints are cracking A TON, I counted 15 cracks in 10 minutes this am. This onset with my pains 4 wks ago. Also, occassionally I get buzzing in my feet. Finally, I have had bowel issues the past 1.5 wks.
I do not have inflammation, or redness on my joints, advil etc does not help, my RA lab was fine.
I have had a cbc, thryoid tested, sed rate, ra, nuclear....all blood work you can imagine and its fine. The only thing that was off was somewhat low d but dr said it was not low enough to cause this.
Does this sound like it could be RA? I am 33 feeling like I am 93 and am very nervous. Can RA just onset one day and can major life stress bring it on? Can this effect your nerves? I notice when I bend down I get a pain in my left foot now.

Why else would I have this pain along with joint cracking?

I noticed that you have posted on several boards requesting help with your symtpoms. Your extensive list of problems really needs evaluation by a physician. Since you have had some tests, you must be seeing someone. What is he/she saying is the possible problem?

In regards to your joints cracking - my joints have popped and cracked for as long as I can remember. My daughter that is your age has had cracking and popping joints since her days as a gymnast. You might find the information at the following site particularly helpful in inderstanding your cracking joints:

I hope the bone scan helps you figure out what is wrong. What do you mean the RA lab was fine? Has RA been ruled out? It doesn't always show up in your blood at first. Some people never. I hope you don't have it and this is just stress having a field day with your body. On the other hand I know it is also very helpful to be able to put a name to something this scary. Good luck! :)
