I have a question about palidromic arthritis.
Can it lead to Lupus or rheumatoid arthritis? There is not alot of info as not much research has been done on it.
I was diagnosed with coeliacs 11yrs ago and it seems my problems started then.
Unfortunately I cannot carry babies after 8 weeks due to my immune system, I have had both hips operated on recently to remove cam legions (hip impingement), my shoulders, hips knees, neck and wrists are showing degeneration. I have had cortisone injections in nearly every joint of my body and found some relief but it doesn't last very long.
I have been told by my surgeon I have got 5-8 yrs max before I need to start having replacements, I am only 35.
Has anyone got the same problems? I am on plaquinil which has helped with the palidromic but my joints are still crunchy (only word described what they feel like)
Sometimes you can feel quite alone as no one really understands so you put a brave face on and say yep I feel fine today when really you feel exhausted, emotional and frustrated with your joints
