mine was odd when I was 15 I collapsed Every joint hurt had fever was in bed for 3 weeks they said "exhaustion"? then when I was 22 same again only Worse this time they said Glandular Fever I was off work for a month even picking up a spoon hurt it was So Heavy, every joint ached although No swelling, I got a little better so went back to work and after 3 days I couldn't move so had another 2 months off work still no real diagnosis I never got better and if I tried to work full time I was ill, then at about 30-35 I had a real bad time I was riding a pushbike and my knee locked and I fell off I had fever swollen glands and a few joints swollen they then tested for RA (amongst everything else) and I came back with a very High RA Factor Positive my Local Doctor diagnosed me even before going to a Rheumy it took a few years for Rheumy's to agree with each other if it was RA as it was not typical I had internal organs swelling and not many red joints but then one lovely Rheumy said Yes, I had a Whole Body Bone Scan which showed multiple points, I had gone rapidly downhill so I could no longer work and went on disability, Sometimes it takes a while to get a firm diagnosis but you need to keep asking and change doctors if needed .
Ask to see a Rheumatologist ask for Blood test even the Bone scan,
if you feel something isn't right go with your feeling your probably right
