I've found myself on a new part of HW and hoping to find maybe a few friends and mostly advice. Here we go, I've have been seeing a Neurologist for the past few months to see why I have numbness/neuropathy in my feet/legs. I need this done before I can get major surgery done on my feet. I've had problems with aches,stiffness,circulation. The joints in my whole body have always bothered me and now at 37 Im like the Tin Man. I cant seem to ever get loosened up and my joints pop all the time. If I sit too long I have to get up and stretch and move. I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis but I've wondered why this is so bad. When I get up in the mornings I have to literally fight to get moving. It eases after the first 1-1/2 hr. but still fighting. Anyway my Neuro is sending my BW to the Mayo clinic to be analyzed and should know in a couple weeks.
In the meantime I am researching this and Im overwhelmed. Are these symptoms anything that are associated with CTD's? I didnt even tell my Neuro 1/2 of what Im telling now so your input would mean alot!!!
Thanks to everyone who took the time to read!!!
