Systemic illness. You need IMMEDIATE evaluation and possible treatment.
I have repeated painful swollen joints I have been told it is gout I have had the joint fluid analyzed 4 times and there have never been any crystals negative rheumatoid panel it affects fingers wrist foot ankle heel knee usually one at a time occasionall
RF - rheum arthritis. You could have rheumatoid factor negative (rf-) rheumatoid arthritis. Not likely gout without crystals in fluid. Other possibilities are pseudo gout or lupus. You may want to see a rheumatologist.
Uric acid. Have your uric acid checked.
Check w your rheum. Having 4 negative joint aspirations makes gout less likely. Other multi joint problems (poly articular arthropathies) may not show up on rheumatoid panels, though a general inflammation test such as an ESR or CRP will normally be elevated). You should get a diagnosis bc many good medications are available to treat rheumatologic diseases today.
Other ways. To check for gout would be elevated uric acid in blood and by way of 24 hour urine. Tapping the joint is the definitive way. There are reasons the tap could be negative, however, I would advise a rheumatology work up with complete bloodwork to rule out causes other han gout.
Small joint pain. Another possibility is psoriatic arthritis if some scaling skin or nail disease/dryness. Have seen many cases of this where fingers and toes are swollen one at a time along with generalized aching joints. Also have a lyme disease test //aso and consider infectious precursor (bacterial or parasitic organism, e.G, tick-born illness if you have visited or lived in ne areas us) to this disease process.
I have very painful and swollen joints in both wrists and ankles. I occasionally have red marks on my face, arms, chest, and legs. Ra or lupus?
Possible lupus. Have it evaluated.
Rheumatologist. I recommend an evaluation by a rheumatologist for diagnosis and treatment. Your symptoms could be due to RA or lupus.
Sounds Like. Possible lupus but check with rhematologist.
Joint discomfort throughout bodysome joint pain in right hand. Heavy head-body feels run down-sometimes tingling thro legs/arms-slight swelling in face?
Not sure! There is insufficient history and very diffuse set of symptoms to reply age? Weight? Duration of symptoms etc This could be nothing important or sign of conditions like rheumatoid arthritis see an MD!
