My spleen is measuring at 13.5 cm.

I aslo have gyne problems and have to psyhically push blood out. I have a big bleed for a day but never completely finish. My blood and discharge is can be clots and and sometimes even looks like poo and smells viel. Even though any swobs show no infection Im in alot of pain and feel that i need to push this out.

Hello, it seems you have developed multiple foci of infections in your body and infection any where in body can give rise to poly arthritis which is being seen in your case. You need to eradicate the infectious issue completely till your CRP level comes down and do see a rheumatologist for some anti inflammatory medication which will help curb your joint pains. Thank you

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It may not be infection! - several courses of antibiotics have not helped.

It could be a Collagen disease / autoimmune problem / the rheumatologist will be the ideal person to investigate...

If there are no clues still, search for occult malignancy may have to be initiated...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
