Rheumatoid arthritis

I’ve been diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis in April last year after I started experiencing pain in my hands with swelling. Results were negative and still negative, however, lately I have been experiencing other symptoms therefore I do not believe I have rheumatoid arthritis. I went to have my eyes checked a few months ago due to pain in my eyes, burning, sandy feeling. I was asked to see an eye specialist as the dr saw some veins/vessels at the back of the eye where there shouldn’t be. I’ve been suffering with headaches either migraines or I get a poking/stabbing feeling on the sides of my head, I’ve been experiencing cramping in my legs, toes and hands, pins and needles and numbness. I also suffer with horrible lower back pain and spine pain as well as shoulder pain which feels like it’s burning with pain. My vision is blurry most of the time and I constantly feel dizzy and light headed.

Your visual symptoms are of great concern and you need to see an Ophthalmologist.

The remaining symptoms are best explained by Fibromyalgia Syndrome.
