    Default arthritis at 25

    Im soooo ****ed at my body. Its really getting me down

    The list:
    *booked for a stomach biospy to see why ive lost 15kg in 8 months.
    * raynauds disease
    * busted knee from a fall, going on 3 months now and still so much pain
    * cyst under my foot
    * arthritis in my fingers

    I kind of know the feeling.

    I'm 32 and have arthritic degeneration in my spine. I have said to all my doctors/therapists - "if this is what I'm like at 32, what is going to happen when I'm 62? I'm going to be a cripple in a wheelchair". So far no one has reassured me that won't be the case

    Default arthritis at 25

    I can relate too. I had back surgery at 24 and had the neurosurgeon comment that I was the youngest person he'd every done. That surgery on, I have arthritis and degenerative changes in my spine, dodgy liver and was just informed yesterday that the mess for my liver have affected my thyroid function grr.

    I was in my 20's when I was diagnosed with arthritis and numerous other things that made me sound like a hypochondriac too. But it all boiled down to autoimmune diseases for me, some of your symptoms sounds similar to mine.

    I'd be asking for a referral to a rheumatologist if you haven't already got one, and I
    'd be asking for a coeliac panel as well. Good luck!

    thanks beebs. Im seeing the gp monday for a referal, and the gp has done a cealiac test but it was inconclusive because some other level was out?? Meh, something like that! Hence the gut biopsy. Hopefully i get some answers soon and start feeling my age!!
