Hi, I was diagnosed recently with soft tissue tears and bursitis based on an MRI and while I don't doubt the findings, I have such horrific joint pain--mostly bi-lateral hip pain and low back pain-- that I'm often encopasitated. An hour or two before the horrific pain, I get so tired that I feel drugged and can barely keep my eyes open. The fatigue is 100% connected to the pain. As soon as the pain lifts, I'm no longer tired. I also just noticed that I have a large bony protrusion below my first knuckle (the finger joint in my hand) and research says it's called a fusi something. I think this is an sIgn of RA too, I've read. My C-reactive protein is elevated but I also have crohns disease and type 1 diabetes. All the autoimmune diseases tend to lump together in people who have them. The MRI also showed bone marrow Inflamatuon but it's near the bursa in my hip.
I will get the test as soon as I can see a doctor but I'm just wondering if this sounds like RA.
