Hi Donna...my name is Denise. I don't know why I'm writing to you...it is just something in your post that spoke to me I guess. In fact...I've never written to anyone before. I just feel so bad for you, I know how it feels to sit in the bathroom and cry because you are in so much pain. I was reading your post over and over and didn't see where you said what your diagnosis was. I was diagnosed with Psioratic Arthritis about a year ago. It is actually Psioratic Spondylitis...it's hallmarks are high sed and crp rates and low vitamin D levels. Along with severe muscle pain. Maybe you should go on the Ankylosing Spondylitis website and read about some of the related diseases. It is the Spondylitis Association of America.
I hope you find some relief.
All my best, DeniseView Thread
