I will be 41 next month. I started having troubles, tests, & problems since I was 18. I was having alot of pain in my knees when I was 28, so my family Dr. sent for an ANA test. It came back positive, but hasn't showed positive since. My tests for inflammation are usually on the higher side. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia & possible Lupus. I have Raynauds, hiatel hernia, restless leg syndrome, GERD, fatigue, high cholesterol, low vitamin D (which I am taking prescription for), a start of arthritis had shown in my knee some years back, often get chest pains & shortness of breath, and migraines. When I was working I was always in pain. I would get to the point I could barely stand. I was sick so often and my concentration and memory was getting so bad, along with Pleurisy every year, so I had to stop working. I have tried different meds over the years, but usually have problems with side effects so I go off of them. My Rheum. put me on Methotrexate to see how I respond. I was nervous about side effects & long term problems, but tried it. I felt a slight improvement, but not enough to take the risk, so went off it. Within no time I got a swollen lymp node on the back of my neck and started to feel completely horrible. My family doc did blood work and found I had Epstein Barr. I was weak for months and had trouble recovering. The past couple years I have had terrible pain in my finger joints. Hard to write, clean, even hold an eating utensil at times. I told my Rhem. about the pain in my hands & all he does is look at them and say, "hmm." More recenetly I have had problems with pins and needles or numbness in arms, hands, legs, and feet, and a feeling of pulled muscles in my calves at times. I am going to see a Neurologist at the end of this month. Wish I had a definite name to my problem. Prayers to all of you.
