Dealing with joint pain, hematuria, gastrointestinal issues, costochondritis, and more
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Around five years ago I dealt with my first real soccer injury, Fribergs Infraction. Soon after I was diagnosed with Raynaud's in my feet (and slightly in my hands) that may have caused this injury. I began to deal with rib pain two years ago that was persistent and lasted for a year. While this was happening, kidney pain would come in waves. About 6 months into my rib pain I developed a strange red rash on my hand that appeared to be photosensitive. This rash also appeared just below my eyes and on my eyelids. I was diagnosed with chilblain lupus in my hands. The rib pain returned a couple months ago. The blood in my urine has been a constant problem for four years now. At this time I am dealing with all of the listed symptoms at once and recently took a trip to the ER. I have seen a wide variety of doctors and I am seeing my third rheumatologist but I have always had a negative ANA test.
