I am a 22 yr old female and recently I've been having quite a bit of health problems. Began with severe chest pain on left side in October 2009, then shoulder pain on left side, followed by different joint pains, muscle pain, twitching, tingliness in left arm and then all over my body. It's progressively getting worse. My EMG of left arm was normal (i'm getting another one on Wednesday), MRI of head was normal, creatine kinase, c-reactive protein, ESR, Vit. D, Thymine, B6, methylmalonic acid were all normal. My B12 was low and I had a positive rheumatoid factor of 39. My joint pain will be in one joint for a few minutes and then stop and move to a different joint...twitching happens randomly too. Does this sound indicative of rheumatoid arthritis? Could someone with Lyme Disease or other tick-borne illness have an elevated RF? Are there any diseases that cause a false positive RF? What other diseases could I have w/ all of my sxs and test results? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
