I am new and don't know where to turn! I am a 20 year old female.
I was admitted to the hospital about a month ago due to pain in my calves - muscular pain. It was horrible. Muscle spasms all throughout my legs and tingling. They just wrote it off as the shoes I was wearing but it has lasted over a month and I stopped wearing those shoes.
My fingers stiffened up so badly I couldn't write. After I was discharged they got my ANA blood test back as 1:160. Rheumatoid Arthritis runs in my family. My mother has it very severely. Although my RA test came back negative at a 9 on a scale of 11.
I've been breaking out in these rashes on my shoulders. I had one for about a month and now there is a scar there from it. I'm very fatigued. Everything else is negative or clean. My potassium was low but now is resolved. I have started physical therapy. A test called SCL 70 came back positive at 2.4 but the doctor has not called me yet. They have done every test known to man and I'm alright.
I do have a history of chronic constipation, gallstones which have been resolved by surgery, IBS, mild acid reflux, depression and anxiety due to the gallbladder surgery. I have lost six pounds in two weeks but now I got myself back to 105pds. I do not have Raynauds but I do have horrible loss of circulation in my feet where they turn purple and blue as well as my hands. Blotchy white but never full on white like Raynauds..
