I'm a 20 year old college student, and I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia when i was about 18. The problem is, I have so many varying symptoms, and not all of them fit the fibro. Everytime i have any blood testing done i get the typical "everything was normal" response, when i know for a fact that I've been sick since i was 15, if not longer, and that something is wrong with me (and no, I'm not a hypochondriac, lol).
My symptoms include headaches/migraines, joint pain, joint stiffness and popping, wounds and bruises that take a long time to heal, chronic yeast and sinus infections, frequent extreme fatigue and occasional overwhelming energy, unexplained anxiety, difficulty losing weight, getting fatigued and nauseous after eating, muscle aches and pains, tingling and numbness in shoulders and hands, insomnia, asthma, trouble concentrating and communicating my thoughts, depression, extreme tenderness to mild touch, tenderness in the lowerback near the kidneys, swelling of the hands, feet, neck and eyelids, flushed, hot cheeks, seemingly random low grade fevers and a general feeling of crappiness.
To give you an idea of what I'm going through, the last time i went to the doctor (2 weeks ago), i felt just about "normal".. turns out i had a sinus infection, yeast infection, and a urinary tract infection and had no idea. I feel so crappy all the time that things that would put people in bed for a few days or at least have them fully aware of an issue seem like any other day. It's gotten to the point where i don't even share my symptoms because everyone thinks I'm making them up or that I'm over reacting, including my doctors.
I've never written in a post like this, so i figured i would ask the people out there. If anyone has any idea of specific things i can ask the doctor to test for, please share! I'm tired of feeling like i'm going crazy because my doctors can't think any particular reason for my problems. Hopefully someone has an idea... :o(
