Dear Melissa
Have you seen a rheumatologist? You may have an outo immune disease (overactive immune response of the body against substances and tissues normally present in the body. In other words, the body attacks its own cells) that needs to be diagnosed and treated before it causes permanent physical damage. Medical aids will usually pay for disease modifying drugs if prescribed by a specialist.
