and / or autoimmune issues. Sorry, I can't think of what it's called in English. I had some bad symptoms a couple of years ago that turned out to be a bad bone infection, but the symptoms included all-over sore joints. They were able to rule out autoimmune illness before they found what it was. They sent me to a doc who specialized in treating arthritis patients.
I HOPE that for you it's going to be something reversible, like coming off the steroids too fast or something like that.
I am so sorry about the cycle.
