I'm new here, so thanks for letting me in.
I've had Raynauds syndrome for some years but lately it has disappeared to be replaced with joint pain & feeling hot all the time. I've never been a hot person, always very cold until now. The pains started in my feet, keeping me awake in the night & being swollen in the mornings, with it subsiding during the day. Then it started in my hands and arms as well. My arm muscles felt like they have lactic acid in them hand my hand simply ached deep inside. It seems almost cyclical but I have noticed if I get ill with a cold or such, then it gets even worse. Sometimes in the night I feel jittery/jangley like adrenaline is flooding my body even though I am tired. I sometimes get a burning sensation to the ride side of my navel, like someones sticking a hot poker in me. My GP has referred me mentioning, rheumatoid arthritis or Lupus, or other inflammatory issues. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
