Got the dx with the news my platelets were 87. I know its not too low but its dramatic to me. Pain worst its ever been and this time the joints hurt on the outside too. I am super sun sensitive now, it was hard being at the beach in long clothes while girls are next to me in bikinis pouring oil on! The hyperpigmentation on my face along with the itchy malar rash has me pretty self concious. The ever growing widows peaks...almost too much to want to wear a pony tail. My heart started the flutters and murmur when I was pregnent with my two year old. Got my first good bout of depression after having her. Could not see going back to work after having the little ones. I have such a hard time cleaning the house and managing pain. I miss jogging. No ana or rh factor but the symptoms tell a different story. I have a tender spot on top of my theigh, been sensitive for months, along with some other areas is that fibro? Im 25, grandfather has RA. Plaq two times a day now..started with some predni but stopped after 4days..where should my pain be at?

I'm a sunsensitive too and I know what you mean about missing the sun. I used to go to the beach for a week every year for vacation. Not anymore....
I walk around in the southern heat with a long sleeve shirt, wide brim hat, SPF 100 lotion, and an umbrella. Needless to say I get weird looks....

For me, my pain is in my hands, feet, elbows, knees, and spine. I get headaches and random muscle pains.
