You could have sero negative arthritis which doesn't show up in blood tests. Ask for a referral to a rheumatologist. You could have osteo arthritis and xrays will show that. Ask for those too.

Don't give up Diane. You know your body better than any medical professional and you are the expert of your own condition. Make them hear you. The big thing is not to feel guilty about actively pursuing a diagnosis. It's their job. Make them understand that you are not someone who is going to be just palmed off - and that this condition is impacting every part of your life. GO FOR IT GIRL --- YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF! Big hug!!
