Default Can Neuropathy create joint pain?

Hi everyone,

Im looking to better understand the symptoms Im experience, not a diagnosis just opinions or feedback to if this sounds similar to experiences you or others may have.

Currently seeing a Spine specialist, GP, Pain mgmt - Soon will be seeing a Rheumatologist and Neurologist

I've had upper back pain near my neck for about 10 years that I let hang around, never testing or treating it. Also know, I've trained in the gym as a bodybuilding for nearly 20 years as well and never witnessed these symptoms. Now I'm trying to understand a new onset of symptoms, with recent tests Bloodwork, MRI of entire back and neck and X-rays which show the below:
  • Multiple MRIs and X-rays of back and neck
  • Herniated discs: C5 to C7
  • 4 Bulging discs lower back
  • My 2 panels of blood tests all came back Normal except Folates and HLA B27, tests performed:
  • RF
  • C-Reactive Protein
  • Sedimentation
  • Antinuclear Antibodies
  • T3, T4, TSH
  • B12, B6
  • Folates: Low
  • HLA B27 was positive

The spine specialist I'm seeing thought there could be a nerve that is compressed possibly. So I received an epidural injection in my cervical area, no relief. Im confused on how such an onset of symptoms can come on so abruptly.
  • No swelling or redness
  • No stiffness really
  • Fingers, toes, and ears feel cold frequently then will warm up
  • Fingers 2nd and 3rd knuckles soreness like pain off and on
  • Some numbness occasionally
  • Pain and tender spots in feet or ankles or toes
  • Pain in hands rotates
  • Had some burning inner tricep a few times, felt like a sunburn almost
  • Muscular twitching through body randomly, mainly leg or triceps which is fine doesn't hurt
  • Dull pain in knees sometimes
  • Hamstring area ache when sitting occasionally
  • Feet and back of heels hurt if standing or walking very long
  • Numbness / burning down right side of trap occasionally

The pain area constantly rotates and is hard to explain the type of pain:
The pain can be sharp shooting, sore ache, electric pinch pain

All of these symptoms came on literally two weeks after a medial branch nerve block injection, coincidence I assume...
