Joint pain

Posted , 4 users are following.

i have been suffering from joint pain for the last 9 months now or nearly. it started as my thigh felt numb like it feel to sleep while i was sat down and then a about a month later i has this aching pain in my big toe which felt like i broke it. and then from there its been pretty much everywhere and nowhere. one minute its in my knee then my finger or wrist and the next i'm fine. first the doctors thought lymes disease or gout. both tests came back ok. then they sent me to the hospital as maybe arthritis and they apparently said no its not or is unlikely as no swelling or redness at all ever. been tested for the gene of spondylitis and came back negative, haven't spoken to doctor on whats next yet.

the pain is agonising some times and thats mainly in my knee but it is literally all over and feels like its cotton wool if that makes sense.

i aslo have coeliacs disease which i was diagnosed with last june (2018).

im worried its something that is been looked over that is also a progressive disease or something

    Hi Midg, have your doctor's suggested fibromyalgia? I don't know much about it except it's notoriously difficult to diagnose because it's muscle disease as opposed to bone and cartilage, like arthritis and other skeletal degeneration, so it won't show up in xrays. I know the pain is widespread all over the body and can be horrible.. I hope you find the correct diagnosis and effective treatment.

    If you can find a good Acupuncturist and they are open I would try that until the Doctors can sort it all out. I have found more relief from that than anything for my joint pain...but they handle more than that they treat the whole body.
