Im feeling really emotionally drained lately, I’ve been having joint pain for the last year, which has been getting progressively worse and encompassing more of my joints. I don’t have a diagnosis yet but with me being 22years old I’m assuming something autoimmune, my doctor agrees. We are planning to get a MRI and blood work done this week. But I just feel like know one understands since I don’t look like I have any issues. Im just so ready for a diagnosis and hopefully a treatment plan. Has anyone been in a similar situation?

      Any results from your tests? I'm in a similar situation and have been tested for so many things. Looking for some leads on what I could be missing?

      @koalaX yeah I think the reason I’ve been pushing it off is because I’m scared everything will come back normal. Keep pushing to see a neurologist. Thanks for responding.

      I’m 24 and started having the same issues when I was 21, though didn’t seek care for it until last year. Primary doctor and Rheumatologist suggested psoriatic arthritis because I have (suspected) psoriasis. Had blood work and x-rays, but no MRI yet, everything has come back normal. It’s frustrating because it’s at the point where it feels like the doctors don’t believe me anymore, but I deal with so much stiffness and pain. I also deal with a lot of numbness and tingling and many symptoms of MS or Fibro, but every time I’ve expressed that I want to see a neurologist I’m ignored. Good luck and definitely reach out if you want to talk!
