In Reply to: Do I have arthritis? posted by AuntieNiceGood on January 20, 2000 at 17:07:34:

: I have a silly question. How do I find out if I have arthritis? I've had "cramps in my legs" since I was very, very little. Mainly in my kneecaps, not really on the muscle. As I grew, my pains spread, from my knee to maybe my elboy, hips, sholders, wrists, ankles. Mainly any joint. I also have a very bad back and have pain there that actually affects my sex life, and no so much my normal life. It's getting bad enough to where I need to get checked out. I go to the chiropractor for my back, and it helps, but what about my knees and other joints? It's funny... we have a cold front coming through town today and I could tell yesterday, my joints started aching. Today they're really hurting. No amount of Tylenol will help. Do I go to a family physician or to a special doctor? HELP!

I just got my blood test results back from the doctor today. It was possitive for RA. I am only 28. It was my family doctor. I had the same symptoms as you. I was tested 2 years ago & results were negative. I would go get the blood test if I were you. Same thing with the weather happens to me too. How old are you? Does it run in your fam? It does in mine. Take care, I hope your results come out neg.
