As the title may suggest I am frustrated because I have no official diagnosis and have been experiencing symptoms for a year and a half now. I’m 25 years and a female and started having swelling of one knee that would come and go every week. I initially went to a physio who then referred me to a gp , the gp referred for an mri, which showed extreme effusion. The gp thought it was a ligament injury so I then went to an orthopedic surgeon who ruled that out and said it seemed systemic.... Fast forward I’ve been seeing a rheumatologist for a year now... he said it’s inflammatory arthritis but I don’t fit in a particular category. All my bloods are normal.... I have refused methotrexate but do take arcoxia almost daily. I also tried steroids but I soon relapsed again.
I just wanted to hear if anyone with a similar experience and if they ever received a diagnosis. I see the rheumotolgist on Monday , but I just feel like it seems it’s in my head as my bloods are always normal.
