Yeah, I thought about it, but, I have no faith in my doctor...well, most doctors...He'd probably tell me again I have allergies
It's weird for me though because I only experience the pain when the weather changes...I knew, the minute I woke up yesterday, the weather would be bad...The weather was awesome
yesterday for a while...A bit warm but sunny and breezy, it was wonderful...However, my knees were KILLING me...Sure enough, about 9:00 last night we started getting lightning followed shortly by a big 'ol thunderstorm....Usually, after the rain, my knees feel better...But, last night, they didn't...Woke up today and it was raining again, pretty hard at times then eventually it cleared up...My knees feel fine now and it's bright and sunny outside...
The reason I'm leaning towards arthritis is because it runs rampant in my family on my mom's side...My grandma has it really bad in her knees...Also, my younger sister is being tested for different types of arthritis because of symptoms she's been experiencing for a while now...They ruled out Lupus and Rheumatoid but they want to do more testing on her...And, she's only...um...lol...28 or 29. She has more outward symptoms than I do...Her fingers are starting to look weird (kind of like twisting) and she's lost a TON of weight without trying...I'm wondering if what I feel with the weather changing is an indication I will develop arthritis in my knees, or, if I'm in the very early stages of arthritis.
Plus, I don't really have the money to see a doctor...We're already behind on co-pays and bills for visits that were uninsured so unless my head is half severed from my shoulders, I don't think I'll be visiting a dr. any time soon
