Hi, and thank you for the welcome!
I have had many blood tests for: rheumatoid arthritis, lyme disease, lupus, hepatitis, other common painful disorders, and been evaluated for MS and Fibro. I have seen three different primary care doctors, three different ortho doctors, a rheumatologist, and a neurologist. I have tried all the NSAID's (leading to liver damage), Cymbalta, Mertazapine, Lyrica, and Flexeril all with little to no effect. The doctors have all said the same thing - HHMMM....UUHHHH....WWEEELLLLLL....I'm not sure.
They all agree that there is more going on than just arthritis, but no idea what.
