I was diagnosed with RA in 2010 and for the most part felt pretty controlled until the last year or so. Usually my test results match how I feel, but not lately.
My blood tests are normal, but I don't feel fine
I just completed my blood tests; CBC, C-Reactive Protein, ESR, and ALT. Although all results are near, or within the standard range, I feel they are not showing the true picture of how I feel. My hands, feet, and hips
hurt all the time, I have weakness and pain in my hands all the time, I drop things, and have noticed some minor balance
I feel like my doctor does not understand or believe me! I am so frustrated. I start to question my own feelings - am I making a mountain out of a molehill? Any ideas or suggestions?
