i have the same problem that you do. i am so sorry that you have to feel this way too. my fingers hurt so bad that i do not get much sleep. the pain is anbearable. i have been to my doctor over and over, and have been tested for everything that you can think of. everything comes up negative. is there anyone out there that can help us? i do not know what to do.my hands just are throbbing with pain. nothing works, if i find out anything i will let you know, will you please do the same? thank you,: Three years ago, I started getting painful lumps in my arm and elbow joints hurt. It was better for a year or so, then I started having trouble walking, my knees were so stiff, my foot, at times feels so painful, like the joint sockets are dislogded, my arm and elbow are always in pain and my right hand has swollen joints and really hurts. I have gone to two doctors and they just wanted to test me for m.s., which I do not have. I finally am seeing a great doctor. She keeps telling me not to get give up, but all the tests come back neg., including the blood tests for arthritis. She thinks I might have lupus or some illness that is causing all my arthritis. I am ready to give up. Has anyone ever had all their tests come up neg. I am really ready to say forget it, no more tests.
