Hello friends! I need some input. I have more recently been feeling a flare with lots of fatigue, heavy legs and just an overall lack of bounce. I have no energy to do anything, but can put on a happy face and fake it to the world. I currently have the diagnosis of UCTD because nothing points to anything specific. I saw my Rheumy last Wednesday and explained that I know I am having a flare when my arms/hands and sometimes my legs go tingly at night. I also get achy around my ribs, painful feet and have random joint pain (plus the extreme fatigue). I said that I thought the inflammation was causing swelling that is affecting and pinching my nerves in my arms and legs, especially at night. She looked at me like I had 3 heads and said that it doesn't make sense anatomically for that to happen. She wrote an order for physical therapy, saying that it could be in my neck and exercises might help. Am I all wet? My theory makes sense to me, but I guess it doesn't in the doctor world. Does anyone else get this symptom? I am not against the physical therapy. I just need to know if I am crazy or not.
All the best to you, my friends!
