Bilateral swelling of ligaments and tendons

Hey bendy friends. I am at the end of my tether with the doctors and so called specialists. I have swelling in my tendons and ligaments that are identical on both sides but apparently there is nothing wrong ? Any way because it’s both sides and because it’s not just one side I have been fobbed off yet again. Please tell me it’s part of being bendy ? I did suspect rheumatoid arthritis but my bloods are not showing this according to the go ( I know you can still have RA without the factor in your blood but the doctor isn’t having any of it).

Please tell me I am not going mad ?

Learning More about myself and #ChronicPain #CervicalCancer #overlappingsymptoms #Inflamation

New insurance meant new doctors for me. I head to my new PC with my file in hand, my list of notes and concerns because I stumble on words when I’m pain. He greats me with ease and attentiveness, and doesn’t treat me like it’s in my head. We start a plan of attack for answers. Blood work, x-rays and referrals.
Blood work comes back almost normal with some vitamin deficiencies even though I take supplements. There’s also that unexpected positive ANA test. So off to rheumatology for more answers. Next the appointment for the cervical abnormalities. Having a history of cancer cells, #LEEPprocedure , irregular bleeding and much more, I struggle with trying to keep some health issues separate, but some overlap with symptoms. Chronic pain and bleeding both hurt and causing me inflammation. At the same time. Along with fatigue and migraines.
This #journey is just starting again. Hoping for relief, answers and understanding.


I am new to the community and wondering how to have a balance between “give your body rest” and “just push through even when you don’t feel like it”

I’ve got #HashimotosThyroiditis and #GravesDisease , #Vasculitis and #RaynaudsDisease . My #Inflamation is awful and stress is my biggest trigger
