The joints in my knees elbows and fingers HURT. They swell and feel hot. I get some relief from putting ice on them. When this happens I feel soooooo tired. My doctor did a blood test then said it wasn't RA. My sed rate was a bit high but not crazy high (32). At the same time my white cells were elevated and abnormal (too many immature cells).
Every time, the doctor has had me come back in for another blood test and everything is fine. This keeps happening on and off. Seriously I was scared it was Leukemia and finally told my doc to stop scaring me half to death sending me letters that my white cells were abnormal and just send letters saying come in for a blood test.
Whatever this is, it's flaring up the past couple days and I can only stay awake for a few hours here and there.
Any ideas on what the heck is wrong?
