Hi, symptoms you have described indicate that you might have some autoimmune disorder. Autoimmune diseases are seen as body doesn’t recognize it’s own cells and reacts to them as they are invaders. By this immune reaction cells and tissues are destroyed, causing dysfunction of organs. I have visited several immunologist until right diagnose was made. Since, all of these conditions related to rheumatoid problems are alike, only specific diagnostic technics and symptoms are taken onto account when deciding on final diagnose. Psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, reactive arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren’s syndrome and myelodermatitis have been suspected in my case. So, definitely go to see an immunologist to start with diagnostic process.
