so most of my life i have suffered from sore joints, bones etc and I've been told and thought it was just growing pains.. but its kind of beyond the joke now, i'm 18 and my joints still hurt, especially when its going to rain and often when its cold. My knees have been killing me lately and also my back has started hurting a lot (the back pain is new, only started a few months ago). I have been to a doctor and had many blood tests and I don't have rheumatoid arthritis or any other problems that can be seen, however I do have the ankylosing spondylitis gene HLA-B27.
My pain isn't so bad though that I wake up in the night, sometimes i cant go to sleep because of the pain but I never wake up because of it. About 2 days ago the bottom of my heal started hurting a lot, like I have a spur on it (is this a sign of ankylosing spondylitis?) I was referred to a rheumatologist in November but cant get in until Feb, any help would be appreciated... does this sound like ankylosing spondylitis?
And I know I sound a lot like a hypochondriac but sometimes my joints just hurt so bad.
Also I get dreadful leg and feet cramps but this might be something else.
