hi guys, im female 36, since 3 years ago i started to have pain in my fingers (both hands) then my ankles then my left knee, now i have burning toes (can't even wear socks when it happens) my shoulder joints are so painfull and wakes me up most night about 3-4am. My GP never wanted to do anything until i started to take pictures of my fingers, i have episodes of swelling fingers, red knuckles, painless bruising on my legs, i have an upset tummy most days. Since then they referred me in emergency to a rhuma, they took xray and found out some degeneration changes in my feet but nothing else. Some days i can barely stay standing up because of my back. The rhuma has diagnosed me with CPRS but hasn't much explained what exactly the condition is, so obviously i went on google and since then i feel that i am going crazy. I have been told by my GP numerous times that it is all in my head and nothing is wrong with me, but when i went the first time to my rhuma they saw that my shoulder joint were really bad, my knee had a lot of crepitation. If it is all in my head why do i have so much pain and no grip at all anymore and why those pain are affecting my daily routine so much.
Can anybody explain a little more about this and do can we get rid of the condition (i have been told that they need to reboot my brain)
Thank you so much
