Re: Confused about symptoms
Well, to be honest, my first thought is fibromyalgia. I had some very
similiar symptoms soon after being diagnosed with ankylosing
With me, I had a small amount of swelling and also pain in my forearms,
upper back and neck, achilles tendons and upper calf area. Maybe you
could check out a tender points chart at a fibro site, and see if you
have any of those.
My RD told me that it is not at all unusual to 'get' fibromyalgia not
long after an immune arthritis diagnosis.
Good luck getting pregnant!!!
