I've gone through every test in the world! I'm tired of bein poked with needles! They thought I had lupus, when I was younger (13) I had such bad GI problems my Dr. pulled me out of school to be homeschooled. I had ulcers, gastritis, bile back up, acid reflux , my stomach was inflammed and had IBS. Now, I still have problems with my stomach but I haven't had any tests run, my dr. just gives me something for acid reflux and expects me to move on. I get terrible headaches. I'm ALWAYS tired. I've been going through dizzy spells...so bad at times I have to sit down because things will spin for at least 5 minutes. I've developed bad pain in my hip and my butt (tailbone almost). Lately my ankles been hruting alot but thats due to weak ankles from soccer injuries I think. I also have "female" problems. Polycystic ovaries the dr. said. My cycle is ALWAYS off. I sometimes get little sores on me or just randomly break out in rashes. I also get a "malar" rash on my face. But all my lupus tests were normal. I've got sharp pains in my left side and have had since I was 13 and the Dr. just said it was air getting trapped and growing pain(when i was 13)...but i'm 23 now and don't see how it could still be growing pain. I've also got thyroid problems and my lymph glands are swollen (goiter). I'm normally pretty anemic and recently developed a defienciency in folic acid.
Okay...so I sound crazy right? I've never been healthy since I was born. I have asthma and by the time i was 2 I had tubes in my ears MULTIPLE times. I also had my tonsils taken out when I was 4. I've always been sick and I'm TIRED OF IT!!!! I'm tired of doctors pushing me off on other doctors and my family doctor just shrugs his shoulders and says "i dunno" . He wont even follow up on the things the rheumotoligist wanted him to. I see an endorcrinologist on Nov 7th and dermatologist after that sometime.
Okay.... So any ideas anyone?? I've got a 1 year old lil girl, and I want to feel better for her!!
