I'm sorry to say that this question is beyond my knowledge. None of the people went to questions on the site are doctors, but answer based on our own experiences and whatever knowledge we've managed to pick up. There are a number of strange autoimmune diseases that can be very hard to diagnose so there are a number of things to choose from. Has your doctor checked for lupus? Connective tissue disorder? Again, I am not a doctor and I'm not basing these suggestions on sound medical judgment, but… Sometimes lupus can be even harder to diagnose than RA and it can involvea lot of strange systems within your body. Karen Lee Richards on our Chronic Pain site has written more about lupus and if any of that rings a bell, meeting talk to your doctor about it.
The best thing I can recommend to you is to seek a second or perhaps even a third opinion. Sometimes, a new pair of eyes may be able to see something your prison doctor can't.
good luck! Please keep us posted?
