I don't know if they are caused by the same thing. So I may put some of this on another thread elsewhere. I have pain in my lower back that has been there for about a year. It is gradually getting worse. The doctor's I ask- usually it's like, oh by the way, my back hurts too-say it's just muscle pain and dismiss it. No treatment. But I have added problems now. I have fatigue. I have pain in the joints and in the muscles every where it seems, sometimes bad some times mild, but I hurt some where all the time. I have pain when I am walking or standing more sometimes. But I also have pain now in my private parts and my bottom, especially when I have to use the bathroom,either number one or two. My bladder is more sensitive than usual. I don't have much money for doctors and I have no insurance. So i would like some ideas before I go to the doctor. I also have diabetes and high cholesteral, this needed to be addressed at the last doctor appointment, so she wouldn't talk to me about the pain issues.

  • Thank you. I have been to a chronic fatigue/fibro site, I will check this out. Lyme is a possibility, but how do you get a doctor to test you? I do remember what might have been a tic, and our dog had a tic on her.
