I hope you may be able to help advise me. I started with agonising right-sided chest pain (suspected pleurisy) after an ear infection back in March this year, which then quickly moved to both sides. This was sharp sudden pangs of stinging, stabbing, itching and vibrations at both sides of my chest and my sides and my back and has continued for months. It feels like someone is stabbing me unexpectedly and I have uncontrollable chest wall spasms. My Dr suspected arthritis and in May my anti CCP came back mild/moderate but the NHS Rheumy was dismissive and I've since seen a private rheumy who suspected early RA but then referred me on again. In May I started with sharp intense stinging and hammering finger pains and toes, followed by my hips and my knees.I've had lots of blood tests done again at rheumatology clinic but currently all normal/negative (including CCP) and including inflammatory markers. I'm in daily chest and widespread stabbing pain and struggling to function and sleep with this and worry. I've paid privately to be seen by a respiratory specialist but have to wait a while for a NHS scan. I'm looking into private MRI as I'm really scared at what's happening. Does anyone have advice on what imaging tests I should be asking for/whether A&E would be worth a visit as the pain just gets too much for me to cope with at times and I don't know how much longer I can cope without treatment I need. Thank you so much.
