Diagnosis

I can't walk today

  • By cesar1010

    Background: Male 24. 155lbs. About four years ago, I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in my hips and my cartilages were getting thinner. I had constant pain each time I sat or stood up from a chair. Currently, I have constant fatigue and very frequent urination. Fingers crack all the time, I have constant thirst, and I have trouble sleeping. Moreover, I have constant heart palpitations every week and head thumping. This to me indicates to a high inflammation in my body.

    Two years ago I took collagen type 2 for about four months for my hip pain. The pain went away. No more hip pain and I thought I was cured. Fast forwarding to today, two years later, and I can’t walk. It came as an internal sudden pain in my left hip every time I try to walk since last night (Friday, January 26, 2018). I do feel inflammation when I touch it. I cannot walk as I feel like I’m gonna fall from the pain. This is strange because I was not feeling any sort of pain before. Going from no pain to “can’t walk” pain is devastating for me. It’s Saturday and I’m not sure if I can make it to class or work on Monday.

    To this day I still don’t know why my cartilage is getting thinner. I went to two rheumatologists, urologists, two physicians, orthopedic and no one knows what is going on with me after multiple blood tests, MRI, xrays.

    On my own conclusions, all indicate an autoimmune disease to me but my blood tests results are always negative. Please see the screenshots for reference.

    The only abnormal result is high Lymphs although there are a few others with no value.
    I need someone to help me read these results and hopefully to figure out what is going on. Also, any short-term solutions so that I can make it to work on Monday. Thanks for the help and your time.

    You need to go to a University hospital and see some of their specialists. I had to do that too. It sounds like you may have something more going on, but I’m not a doctor. Are you in the U.S.?

    I hope you can get some help.
