Swollen Extremities And Joint Pain?
Posted 08 June 2004 - 05:19 AM
Is this a Celiac reaction to gluten?? Does anyone else get this? How do I make the swelling go down? It is painful and Tylenol is not helping much.
I ate nothing questionable so I am at a loss as to what is going on.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.

I did make it to the doctor yetserday. It seems we have Fifths Disease running around my area and the doctor thinks that is what I have. It is typically a disease you get during childhood, but very bad if you are pregnant. We checked and I am not pregnant. In theory, this should go away by the end of the week. If it does not, I will be getting all kinds of blood tests to find out what else it could be. You've mentioned a few good options like Lupus that I would prefer not to have thought about, but better to know the possibilities.

Well I am over the Fifth's Disease thing. My daughter and every child and parent that we were in contact with got sick with Fifth's. Nasty little disease since you are contageous when you don't know you are sick.
My hands still swell up in the mornings, but nothing like when I was sick. And my hands still ache at times. I'm tempted to go back to the doctor to have him run a few tests, just to be sure. Turning on and off faucets nearly kills me, so I leave leaking fauctes all over the house - not good. This is all new since I got sick with Fifth's which makes me wonder if something else is going on too.
A lot of people seem to think the swelling could be signs of some other diseases, so you might want to get checked out further. Ticks are a serious problem around my area, one of the little buggers just gave me a painful bite the other day. So I think that is one of the things I will need checked.
Good luck and post if you find an answer to the swelling.
