For the past couple of months I have been having severe pain in my feet and hands. I saw my GP who sent me for blood tests and they came back with elevated WCC, ESR & CRP.
I also had low Vit D so I have been put on a months course of that. I was told to have my bloods redone which I did, I got the results on Tuesday and the ESR & CRP are even more elevated! I ended up in A & E last Friday as the pain was too much and I was struggling to walk at work, I was prescribed Tramadol to ease the pain until I saw my GP.
So I have now seen the GP and she has referred me to Rheumatology, she is unsure what it is as my pain and stiffness is in several joints but she said most of my symptoms point to RA or IA.
I just want some guidance as to what the next steps are and if anyone is suffering with this close my age, I am 25 years old, I am worried this is going to stop me from doing so many things.....
