Hello. I’m becoming concerned...

Hello. I’m becoming concerned because the pain behind my knee is increasing. My knee itself feels like I sprained it or something. I’m also double jointed & my knees have popped for a thousand years. My hands ironically have been hurting for last couple weeks also. So I’m falling apart. I thought I just read something that said bladder issues possibly could be a symptom also. I’ve have that now for about 6-8 weeks. Back of my leg feels like I’m getting no circulation at all. But nothing really look swollen. Feels like I’m dehydrated.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

No swelling & really not sure that there’s anything that triggers

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I know of. I dontake lasix for edema. & I have chiaroscuro malformation. I take Celebrex for any swelling issues

So have you been tested for autoimmune disease or gout?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Autoimmune always comes up completely crazy on white blood cells. I have Epstein Barr pretty bad. So they’ve always blown it off to that.

I think it should be looked at for sure

gout too

simple blood tests would screen for it

What type of doctor should I see??
& does it have anything to do with my all of the sudden urinery issues?

I would see a rheumatologist

Some autoimmune can cause urinary issues

Like reiter's syndrome

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
