I am a 28yo female who has been in chronic pain for 6 years. I injured my neck and back 9 years ago. pain was intermittent until 2003 when i significantly increased my physical activity. i lessoned my activity shortly after but the pain is now chronic.

my symptoms are:

headaches
muscle spasms (pulling) in back, head and face
muscle tightness
joint aches (neck, lower back, hips, knees, and recently shoulder)
depression (not sure if this is a symptom as i believe i am depressed because of the pain)
dizzy spells - my vision gets blurred/blackens and shake a little bit
tiredness

I do not know my fathers medical history.

I am currently on (excuse the spelling) mobic and amatriptalyne. i only take endone for flareups.

I have seen orthapaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and rheumatologists with no avail. i have had mutilple xrays, ct's and MRI's and still no firm diagnosis.

currently, my diagnosis is fibromyalgia.....with others laughing and diagnosing me as a malingerer.

can somebody please help me? i am not a faker and just want my life back..
