I've been chronically ill with varying degrees of fatigue since I was 12 without any type of diagnosis from multiple MDs. My symptoms have been back with a vengeance for the past 8 weeks getting progressively worse.
If it's significant, things took a turn for the worst a few years ago when I had a massive, systemic strep infection leading to itching, all of my skin peeling off, and rheumatic fever.

If anyone have any ideas, please, PLEASE, I'm desperate for any idea. My Dr. diagnosed me with fibromyalgia because she couldn't make sense of my labs and symptoms and is sending me to an Infectious Disease Specialist. I've seen two rheumatologists, two primary care MDs, an ENT specialist, and no one can figure out whats wrong. HELP
