Arthritis: This sounds like a type of arthritis. Discuss your symptoms with your doctor and review your tests and get any other help sorting this out. All the best and I hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

What autoimmune diseases can cause severe pain in most of a persons bones/muscles/joints? ANA was normal, so PCP says not Lupus. I need suggestions.

One can have both.: Lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus) is an autoimmune disorder that can affect any tissue or organ on the body and can cause low blood counts such as what can happen in acute leukemia which is considered a malignancy.
