I am itching to ask him about seronegative arthritis. It began with tingling fingers and toes last Jan to March but it seems like I am trying to tell him his job.
Then March this year same symptoms followed by pain in forearm migrating to knees, then moving to scapula area behind neck . Arms continue to ache but wrists and knees feel stronger for exercise.I have sore eyelids and now a rah over rib area- doc says an allergy or chickenpox- but too long after startin to be drugs...
I am taking gabapentin and amytyptoline which helps with tingling and numbness.
GP is helpful but doesn't know where to refer me. He looked at X-ray and old MRI of spine and said its due to this, but from al I've read OA doesn't migrate like this and pain starts in hands ( have lumpy finger joints a nd red palms from time to time) and moves up rather than emenating from spine. Haven't had sciatic pain thank goodness, as I had with herniated discs.
I know I'm lucky I can still exercise but worry that if he is missing RA my joints could be at risk.
if this is all degenerative discs shouldn't he refer me back to orthopaedics? At the moment he just says it's too early- began again this year middle of March after my Mum died
And finally does anyone have symptoms like these due to reactive arthritis?
Apologies for length if you have read all this!
