Background of me:
35yrs old, fit and healthy, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, worsening sporadic joint pain last 5 or so years. Now more frequent than not.
Affects wrists/hands, knees, ankles/feet and lower back. Rheum diagnosed poly arthritis and said this may change over time to RA.
Now I’m having a flare, I’m so tired, I am extremely sore at night, during night and on waking until I get moving. I am almost locked up, especially my back. I’m currently wearing back brace and feel so much more mobile with it on.
This weeks bloods (6 vials testing everything under sun) came back “normal” this included inflammatory markers and HLA...so why am I in so much pain and so restricted all over!
I’ve had random days where my entire skin feels bruised and face puffy and extra tired but it passes in a few days.
Given my autoimmune history any suggestions??
Ps: yes I’m heading back to rheum just curious if I sound like any of you!
