I'm sure many of you have been down this road, but a friend of mine has been going from Dr. To Dr. And has yet to find the answer. She has a lot of swelling and pain in feet, back, hands. It started with a swollen finger, unable to bend, they did surgery to see if she had a bone infection but that came out clear. The finger still does not bend. Sometimes she can hardly walk the bottoms of her feet hurt so much. She has been tested for a lot of stuff including beri beri, reiters, gout and lupus to name a few. She is not tired all the time just swelling and pain. I guess she just has to continue searching for an answer. Any suggestions?

Hi there! Is there a lot of burning pain. You might check out rsd, it is hell on earth. It could be some type of a neuropathy syndrome. Hope you find some answers quick. Has she been to a neurologist or a pain clinic? Keep us posted.
Sincerely,
sandy
