I am being referred to a rheumatologist and want to check if my symptoms sound familiar to anyone?
The major problem I have struggled with is crazy fatigue for about 5 years now, originally I was told I was low in iron and that was the only explanation given even after I had been on iron pills about 5 times and not noticed it making a difference.
I then started getting pains and aches every where really, elbow, wrists, ankles, muscles and worst probably my knee which when stanidng would hurt and need stretching out. I got really low as just felt so drained and was diagnosed with depression as the cause but pushing through I feel like that was definitely a symptom not a cause.
The thing that makes me unsure is that I have no visible swelling and the joints are not tender to touch. The pain feels more in the bones than joints at times as well.
The pains are fairly brief and shooting but often, also dull throbs and the aches are almost constant. My ankles and wrists feel weak a lot of the time. But I feel like perhaps they aren't as bad as a lot of other people that suffer from RA.
Any opinions would be much appreciated if anyone has experienced the same.
