stiff and swollen hands, feet, spine etc.
My sister is suffering with all of the above. Some days are better then others. She has had blood tests, but, has not found out what is causing her problem. Her (CRT) if this if the correct verbage is very elevated and rising. She is going to the Heart Specialist tomorrow, as she has been on a medication for a few years. She is a small woman and is very active. What do you think is going on with her. Any reaply or suggestion would be greatly appreciated. She also has an appointment for a Rheumatoid Specialist.

diagnoses
I have lyme disease. All of the symptoms you display, MAY be symptoms of lyme. If you live in a wooded area, been hiking, ect. it is VERY important you get to a doctor ASAP. The longer you leave Lyme's disease untreated the harder it is to find. Good luck to you and God bless.
