I have had a fever for over a year now. I have joint pain in wrists and awaiting ultrasound guided steroid injections. I have three deformed fingers, premature ventricular contractions, shortness of breath, chest pain, upper back pain, neck stiffness, cracking and pain. I have dry mouth, nose, throat, eyes and now choking regularly. I had surgery for a prolapsed spinal disc and loss of sensation or power to the entire right leg. Now, I have a rash on my face and neck and unexplained bruises and rashes. My joints crack and creak. My wrist and knuckles swell and turn red. I have ulcers in my mouth and lost weight. My BP keeps fluctuating between 69/49 mmHg and 220/202 mmHg and pulse too remains irregular between 39 bpm and 115 bpm. I also feel fatigue, irritability, aggressive with low vitamin B12. The rheumatologist, who I am visiting once in six months, is not keen to diagnose me. Please help me.
