Several years ago in 2013 I was"diagnosed" with RA. I went through every medication including, humira, embral, to now IV fusions of remicade which has been almost a year. I am not feeling any better and body aches and joint pains getting worse. I started researching my symptoms and lyme kept coming up. 9 months in and many drs telling me i have nothing its my RA and that I am pretty much crazy, I made an appt. with an infectious disease dr whom also said my symptoms are RA nothing else related to lyme or ticks. Well today I found out after waiting 3 weeks for the results i tested negative for Lyme but positive for "Ehrlichiosis" now i am wondering if all this time of being untreated caused my body to fall apart. I am only 42 yrs old I have a 4 yr old i have no energy to play with or strength to open a jar of apple sauce. Can this positive "Ehrlichiosis" result be the cause of my ailments? And have gone untreated for ever how long cause so many masking problems? I have had so many abnormal blood tests for years. I start antibiotic today for 14 days is that gonna be enough? Is that going too heal me altogether? This is a bittersweet moment for me. Do I even really have Iron deficiency anemia or did this bacteria cause me to have problems?
I am in pain everyday! My life sucks! I just want to know how to get some relief! Most days I don't want to get out of bed! My feet and legs hurt the most on me but lately my hands are starting to hurt! On my right foot I have a lump on the bottom of my foot, I have bunions(big) on both feet, and I have rheumatoid on both but a lot more on the right, then I also have neuropathy on both feet. I also have cellulitis which makes my legs swell and throb with pain! I just have too much wrong with me, if I could find some relief for one or two of my problems I could deal with this a little better!! I would try some of the Garden of Eden but I don't know where to get some of the ingredients on the list? Has anyone tried that?? Any advice would be appreciated, thank you!!!!
I've had RA for 26 years. I was on Methotrexate for 24 of those years. I've tried Xeljanz for a month. Made me weak, nauseous, major headaches etc. Tried Enbrel, results not good. Humira, results were no effect or side effects, can't afford. However it seems Zyrtec seems to help my allergies and takes away some pain. Of course my Rheumatologist doesn't see any value and is unhappy with my results with the biologics and Xeljanz.
