    Tendononitis, Joints, Ligaments, Hair Loss, Vitamin Deficiency

    I could really use some help...badly....I have been going through this for about two years now and I have listed all the symptoms in a relatively accurate chronological order (some began simultaneously to others). I have had many blood tests / vectra test (63 = very high = much inflammation). Docs believe it to be autoimmune, spondyloarthropies , but no idea on which one exactly.

    I am on humira, but almost all symptoms below are still persisting .

    left elbow tendinitis (golfer's)
    severe lower back pain (injury induced, 10/10 pain @ the time))
    dry itchy skin (all over body)
    dry itchy scalp (flaky)
    increased hair loss in periodic intervals
    ringing in ears
    weight loss
    joint pains (shoulder, knees, ankles, elbows)
    digestive issues (after eating - diarhea, cramping, pain)
    random traveling pains (sharp and dull - all over)
    dizziness (seldom, lasting seconds at a time - not recently)
    difficulty concentrating / focusing (not recently)
    right elbow tendinits (golfers)
    biceps tendinitis (left)
    biceps tendinitis (right)
    low iron
    low vitamin D
    low BUN
    feels like tendons shrinking

    Try smoking marijuana. My husband has tennis elbow, tinnitis,
    And osteo, and old back injury.
    If it wasn't for marijuana, he wouldn't have an Appetite, it helps with the pain believe it or not.
    You should give it a try

    I was on humera also, it didn't do me any good. I have vitamin D deficiency also. I'm taking high doses of vitamin D (per doctor). I started an anti-inflammatory diet, quality fish oil and probiotics which also helps my digestive system. All together it helps quite a bit.. I also believe in marijuana. Have you ever been diagnosed with fibromyalgia? Sounds like it, sorry to say!! Hair loss for me was vitamin deficiency and the DMRD type drugs. Now I have a thick head of hair that it's hard for me to take care of!! Good luck!!
