Re: Reactive Arthritis, anyone?
thank you very much for your well wishes, empathy and advice. it turns out i have myofascial pain syndrome. a levator scapula injury + poor posture and a lot of unmanaged stress are to blame. i had no idea popping and cracking joints could be a symptom. anywho, i will be starting physical therapy (and seeing a psychiatrist-lol) to try and keep this from becoming chronic. this has truly been a humbling experience. my best friend (she's 24) has rheumatoid arthritis. she has it in control & that gives me hope. take care, all.
