ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Since 2016 I have had high white count and platelets as well as c reactive protein and sedimentation rate. When this started I weighed 130lbs within 6 months I gained over 50 pounds no change in diet what so ever. I also suffer from hypothyroidism in which I am medicated for and tested regularly my levels are also in proper range. People are constantly asking me if I am pregnant or when am I due. I had a hysterectomy thinking that would help take care of some of the pain and it didn't I have had upper gi testing colonoscopy bone marrow aspiration and biopsy multiple blood work for cancer have seen rheumatologist who diagnosed me with rheumatoid arthritis, stage2 osteoarthritis of both knees, bursitis both knees, osteoarthritis of both hips bursitis in both hips I have been on treatment for the rheumatoid since January 2019. I have been seen by hematology, rheumatology, infectious diseases, endocrinology and nothing. I have had work ups for tick borne illnesses as well as cancer and nothing. I continue to gain weight although my diet is healthier than ever all the weight is in my abdominal area not in my arms or legs. My teeth also just seem to break and crumble. My skin breaks out in welts that sometimes are 2 or 3 inches long they are extremely itchy and then they get real hot and sore but within a few hours just as quick as they came they are gone they usually pop out on my arms and fingers and above my ankles. When they pop out on my fingers I get little water blisters on my fingers. I am constantly tired I have no energy I cannot get down on my knees it hurts to bad to get back up. I hurt constantly even with the help of pain medications I see a pain management clinic however they are limited on medications to give me because they do not want me on a pain medication that will increase my platelet count.
