Hi, Just turned 39 year old married father of four. Pre Xmas last year suffering with chest pains & a full MOT highlighted hyper-tension. For the last 8 months or so I've been suffering severe joint points. Some times to the point of making me totally unable to walk (knees, feet, ankles, hip) as well as pains in my elbows, hands, wrists (carpul tunnel surgery 3 years ago), shoulders & even my jaw. Initially gout was suspected due to slightly high uric acid in the blood. Approx 3 months ago came down with a bad cold that turned to Sinusitus two months ago which is still present. Three weeks ago or so whilst feeling very poorly one evening I coughed up approx half a pint of fresh blood (cough had been persistent). Numerous tests have been done which show high CRP & all the other associated indicators, protein & blood in urine, an enlarged node on right lung. Also lost stone & a half in weight in last three months. Letter from hospital yesterday advising \"spurious\" result re ANA & C-ANCA in blood. Hospital are treating me for WG (Prednisilone) but want to do a Sinus bioposy but I have not had nasal crusting & as such they want to operate & scrape from the apparant enlarged walls of the Sinuses. has anyone else suffered with Sinusitus without crusting?
