I am new to the boards and have recently been referred to a rheumatologist as they think I have arthtitis but all my blood tests came back negative. I have constant pain which diclofenic with codeine does not touch and the GP has injected a steriod into me which has had little effect. She has advised me to wear splints which help as they keep my joints warm but I look daft as I have pain in both ankles, kness, wrists and elbows and recently my neck has started to become painful I have had pain in my knees and ankles for a while but over the last month the pain has come on suddenly. When describing the pain is difficult as it feesl very warm and tingly/numb if that makes sense and all i want to do is try and crack my joints back into place but cant. Has anyone any tips or had similar problems ??
