Too many symptoms: A symptom diary is helpful in such cases. One can write down the symptoms that happen each day, along with the activities that day, the foods eaten (including drinks), and medications taken. Write on a big calendar. Include whether the medications help the symptoms. Then a doctor can START with the most bothersome symptoms, as multiple symptoms usually means several visits to the doctor. ...Read more

RICE treatment helps: Based on your description, it sounds as though you are having a problem with an isolated bone and its surrounding joints as opposed to generalized bone pain and swelling. The bone must be evaluated for any trauma specific to it. This may include x-ray along with a clinical history. Since your "RICE" treatment seems to be working, continue with it until you can be examined, hopefully soon. ...Read more

If you have experienced a fall or injury lately, you may have a sprain or bruise. RICE = Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. Also, try some tylenol or motrin to see if this helps with the pain. ...Read more

I am experiencing knee pain for the past 5 years- Painful swollen joints, Knee swelling, and Joint stiffness. Gradually getting worse. MRI showed only inflamation. Do I need to go to ortho dr? What can I expect to hear as diagnosis?

Yes and Rheumatology: It sounds to me like you have a polyarthritis that may be an inflammatory arthritis. Lab tests for connective tissue disease are not routinely performed, but in your case I would test for Lyme disease, Rheumatoid arthritis, and other causes of polyarthropathy. Do your painful swollen joints migrate? Any joint fluid taken for analysis? Any trauma? Full history and exam indicated. ...Read more

I've had transverse myelitis for 3 years pos ANA 3 years ago now new labs ANA ifa 160 evelevated CRP anti DNA neg red painful swollen joints in hands and feet

I'm : I'm sorry you don't feel well.
As you probably know, antinuclear antibodies (ANA) are produced in a number of autoimmune diseases, including lupus (about 85% of cases), scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, and sjogren's syndrome. Anti-dsdna is a test that is specific for lupus. C-reactive protein (CRP) is a nonspecific indicator of inflammation and can be elevated in a variety of situations.
Transverse myelitis can occur in a number of autoimmune disorders, including lupus, sarcoidosis, and sjogren's syndrome.
Your clinical picture is highly suggestive of an autoimmune disease, and you should be seeing a rheumatologist if you're not already doing so. Your condition requires a specific diagnosis so the appropriate treatment can be instituted.
I hope things go well for you. ...Read more
