New here today, hi all.
My background-I first approached my GP because of sore, stiff, swollen hands in 2018, GP referred me to Rheumatology and found I had mild osteoarthritis in my hands. I got back pain in Sept 2018 soon followed by shoulder, neck, elbow, wrist and strangely the balls of my feet, lol. My knees hurt if I jump off a step now which they never used to.
I saw an Occupational Therapist for help with the hand pain and she referred me to a Physiotherapist for the back pain. He said Golfers Elbow, Tennis Elbow, possible Shoulder Impingment and maybe a disc problem with my back, he hasn't got to my feet yet.
I feel like I have some sort of systemic problem as my CRP is not raised and I think it would be if all these things were wrong with me. I sometimes feel like there's something crawling under the skin on my shin and around my bellybutton but there's nothing there, sleep badly and feel my bed is lumpy even though it's not.
I think it's Fibromyalgia but it seems impossible trying to get an appointment with the Rheumatoloist. I am going to speak to the GP next week again and try and get them to chase up.
Does anyone think this sound like Fibro? There is a lot of other symptoms that come and go but think I've wittered on enough for now.
