I am 45,since last year i notice lost joint pain ankles,wrist,hands,elbow,knees i can't kneeling anymore it hurt,and this year i notice swelling hands?

Multiple Joints

Elbow
Typically with multiple joint involvement we have our patients start with a Rheumatologist to check if there is systemic arthritic involvement. Your Primary Care doc could start the evaluation with 10 days on 4 days off various anti-inflammatory medications to see if they can find one of the 9 categories to work well at controlling your symptoms.

Dr says fibro - Ana slightly high, depression,restless legs,muscle twitching, fatigue,tingling, joint pain headache,elbow/wrist pain,anxiety dr right?

Fibromyalgia

Fatigue
Though patients who meet the criteria for diagnosis of fibromyalgia can have many associated symptoms, and usually have poor quality sleep, the focus of that diagnosis is about the pain and tender areas. It is not usually about joint pain, and though ANA elevation is not diagnostic, you may want to discuss your symptoms with rheumatologist as there could be other issues.

I have joint pain elbow, wrist, shoulder and neck pain and back pain any advice?

See a doctor

Back_pain
at age 20 this may be nothing or, if long lived - greater than 4 weeks- may indicate the start of arthritis. other considerations have to include whether there is swelling. morning stiffness redness in the joint etc. It is best to be seen and evaluated medically

This illness is seldom if ever manifested by acute arthritis and something else is likely to be going on at the same time. Get yourself fully evaluated. Hope this clears up quickly.

perhaps several hundred possibilities. If joints also swollen or red or warm to touch or restricted in motion, rheumatic fever and other forms of arthritis need urgent evaluation

Dr. Soren Singel answered:

I have cervical kyphosis and over the past few days I've developed multiple joint pain in my left shoulder elbow and wrist. Are the 2 connected?

Musculoskeletal

Elbow_pain
Systemic conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system come to mind. Rheumatoid arthritis affects multiple joints, including spinal facet joints, shoulder and elbow/wrist/hand. Connective tissue laxity in Ehlers Danlos may be the contributing factor for these as well, your orthopedic provider may be a good resource for this.

Bruising is a sign of blood clotting problems which can occur during severe infection. Headache with tingling and neck pain is worrisome for meningitis. You need to be evaluated ASAP.

Elbow pain

the good news is is that there is no redness. that said, it should be carefully examined with range of motion observed, location of maximal tenderness and imaging should be obtained.
