I am sero positive RA, undifferentiated connective tissue dz, trigeminal neuralgia, small fiber neuropathy are my main diagnosis.
Two weeks ago, after a weekend of gardening, I went to bed feeling stiff - OK normal- then I had the worst pain to date: severe knee, back, ankle, wrist, elbows and neck pain. Ankle wrists and elbows felt like ulnar Nerve, Carpal and tarsal tunnel syndrome, my hands were white, my face and lips were on fire, my left eye felt like it had an ice pick. I couldn't even get up due to pain. Eventually fell asleep, must of gotten some sleep because I awoke somewhat better. I could walk talk etc but dizzy and felt like I had no vocabulary. Over the week, each day I got better. By the weekend, I was basically back almost back to my normal except for dizzy and tingling. Monday my pcp upped gabapentin to 600 and add a beta locker. I'm better as in dizziness is down.
I have a neuro appt coming up. But wow. My rheum said it was neurological- thus I saw no sense in going to the ER.
Has anyone had this? Was this a flare? As in is my RA evolving?
