About three years ago I started to have a lot of different symptoms: constant pain in jaw on both sides, a long with 24/7 headache. I feel fatigued, and usually feel crappy after eating.
I also have a lot of additional symptoms after eating a lot of different foods, like wheat, oats, corn, dairy, onions, tomatoes, and a lot of other fruits and vegtables; such as bloating, diarrhea, chest pains, bad acne, "mind fog"/hangover feeling, occasional swollen glands in neck. I originally started having all of these symptoms as well as the others above at the same time until I was able to attribute some symptoms to what I ate, and started removing things from my diet. I am able to avoid the symptoms in this paragraph by eating a very limited diet.
I've been to several general practitioners, gastroenteroligists and have been tested everything they could think of, and never gotten a diagnosis other than "IBS", depression or, "nothings wrong with you." All tests have been negative (except lyme diesese pretest that showed up as "two bars" or something, whatever that means, but doctor said it was nothing), endoscopy/colonoscopy show nothing except minor inflammation, and "reactive nodules near terminal ileum". I've been tested for celiac/allergies several times before anyone asks.
I've seen a couple dentists/oral surgeons for the jaw pain/headache, and been treated for "TMJ" with absolutely no improvement. In fact most of the stuff I've tried (consciencely keeping teeth apart, wearing mouth guard at night) seems to make the pain worse. No doctors seem to think the jaw pain could be related to the digestive problems, but they started at the same time.
In the past few months I've also started to get cracking/pain/stiffness in the joints in my hands like I have arthritis or something, but I haven't gone back to a doctor since. Seems like there are a lot of autoimmune/inflammatory diseases that could cause fatigue and both digestive/joint problems. Would anything like this not have shown up on standard bloodwork?
I would greatly appreciate any opinion/ideas on any of this.
