For 2 years I have been seeing a rheumatologist. I got sick 2 years ago. I woke up one morning and my legs hurt so bad I could not walk. I went to the doctor and my white counts were super high as well as my inflammation markers. After about 2 weeks of this I developed painful red bumps on my shins. That's when my primary doc sent me to the rheumatologist. I have had all the tests you can think of. So far I have not had a positive rheumatoid marker nor a positive ANA. I have had two MRI's of both hands and these show erosions in the wrists and hands. I also have a rash on my cheeks and nose. It is red. Recently I noticed brown patches over these. I generally feel like crap. I am tired all the time and have recently had a bout of Pleurisy and am now suffering from Bronchitis. I have had the bronchitis before but never Pleurisy. My question is, has anyone ever had these symptoms? If so what is your "official diagnosis" ? I am soooo frustrated. I go back to the rheumatologists in August. Any ideas on what I could have/ i will appreciate any info. or help you guys might be able to give to me. Thanks in advance and i am looking forward to hopefully meeting all of you.
