I have been in pain for about 9 years. My muscles, joints and even my bones hurt. It is really hard to describe. I am very fatigued and sometimes have a loss of appetite. My jaw hurts and I feel like there is a "knot" or something in my throat when I swallow. Hard foods are difficult to eat 'cause I sometimes choke. And I have heart palpitations. I have seen several drs. They all run one set of blood work and tell me that everything is normal and then want to put me on medication. They have offered me everything from pain killers to anti-depressants. All of these have been offered with no explanation of why. There has been no diagnosis. After getting the same look and the same run around, I just want someone to care. The way I am feeling is not made up and I am very discouraged. I just want an answer.
