I'm 21 and since around June this year I have been having pain in my knees and my hands become stiff and feel swollen - always worse in the mornings and after any sort of exercise. I have also had sternum/chest pain. I'm tired all the time too and I just feel mentally slow.
I have been back and forth to my doctors. They did kidney/thyroid bloods but norm. They never really did much which was v upsetting!
I recently moved house and I went to the local doctors and he was concerned about RA so ran some bloods. I phoned the other day and the receptionist said the blood results were fine? I've booked an appointment for monday anyway because obviously I'm not fine!!
For the past 2 weeks I've had crepitus in my knees when I bend down - it feels horrible! I'm just in pain a lot, I take ibuprofen which helps but don't think that is great long term for my liver!
If it isn't RA then what could it be?
Or can you have RA but have normal bloods?
Any advice appreciated!
