So sorry you are hurting. There are over 100 different types of arthritis/auto-immune issues and a rheumatologist is the best person to diagnose and treat them. In order to make the most of your appointment ensure you take the following with you. I find it best to write everything down.
- list of all medications, supplements, vitamins, etc. that you take
- family medical history - what kind of diseases, arthritis, etc. runs in your family
- complete list of symptoms - don't edit it because you think it isn't relevant - list ALL of your symptoms
Good luck and I hope you get your answers and some relief very soon.
