  1. Hello, I'm sort of new to this whole thing and I'm looking for advice. About two months ago, my ankles started to have a lot of pain and it was uncomfortable to stand for long periods of time on my heels. Then they started to swell and even present some edema. I went to a podiatrist and he injected my ankles with cortizone and the swelling disappeared, but the pain didn't. My doctor put me on doxycycline with the idea that it was Lyme. But my symptoms progressed to headaches and extreme fatigue. My muscles also get really sore. I went off the doxy as two lyme tests two months apart showed negative. I was also tested for rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and hypothyroid. Though my thyroid levels were slightly elevated, my sedimentation levels were double what they should be and the c- reactive protein level was also unusually high. He said my whole body is inflamed and it seems like an autoimmune issue but he doesn't know why. This was just yesterday, so I haven't been tested for celiac or gluten intolerance but my son has had it since he was born and I'm very familiar with the problem. To all you pro's out there, does this sound like I could be developing the same issues as my son? Thanks so much...Steve
