I'm a 20 year old female south Asian suffering from bone pain in legs and arms.. I have been diagnosed with sciatica and have a constant burning/mildly painful sensation in my lower back hip.. Recently these bone pains have become a bit disturbing and happen mainly in my thighs, arms, and collar bone. My doctors are testing for rheumatoid arthritis but I keep insisting that the pain is not in my joints. Can I get some help?
It doesnt seem to be rheumatoid arthritis as there we have pain usually in small joints of hand along with few major joints. there is morning stiffness. joints are swollen inflamed and very tender. Having pain at multiple sites above and below the waist in your age with normal ESR/CRP levels, one should think of fibromyalgia a common disease but not diagnosed by many doctors due to unawareness. pls . Please visit a pain physician for an opinion.
