I have been not feeling well for awhile but recently it has been getting worse. I have had a positive ANA 1:640 and a high CRP. I have also received a diagnoses of gout because of toe pain but never had a blood test or an X-ray.
Recently I woke up with stomach issues, nausea diarrhea and extreme pain throughout my body. I have started part time this year because of the exhaustion and my inability to do my job and take care of my family.
On this particular day the pain was very bad, I was extremely scared and almost agreed to go to the ER which I hate doing.
The following morning I woke up, my fingers were swollen, hot, toes hurt. Pain was pretty severe. Called doc for emergency appointment and she said RA.
Prednisone has helped. RA factor came back <10 with 14 being positive. I have hashimotoes, and celiac disease already.
ANA homogenous and spotted what could this be?
