Joint pain-severe

After about 1 hr. , rt. foot swelled up with gout(?) Soon after all shoulders, elbows, knees, fingers, and toes, swelled and in pain. Blood tests with doctor, revealed nothing, except high level (inflamitory qoutient?). Fingers and toes still in severe pain. Taking a course of Prdnisone, w/ Percocet. Does anyone have an idea of what this might be? Also came up negative on R.A. & Lupis tests. Thanks for any input.

Hypothyroidism and osteoarthritis , degenerative joint disease are some disease's that do have the symptoms your having. I would suggest going back to the doctor and having futher test done to find out what is causing the swelling and joint pain. It could be any number of things but to make a correct Dx you really need additional test done. How are the medications your taking working?
Keep us informed and let us know if we can help.
I hope your feeling better very soon:)
