I just came across this site while researching some potential disorders that match my symptoms. It has been a long, and soul searching journey trying to figure out what is happening to my body. I am a 37 year old woman, and my illness/symptoms began in June of 2005. It all started with a minor cold. The cold turned into bronchitus, and fatigue. About a month later the bronchitus and cold went away and the fatigue never stopped. I began to notice a tingling sensation from my elbows to my fingers, and from my knees to my toes. My body felt achy alot of the time. My knees also hurt. In October of that year the tingling sensation spread to my whole body, though more intense in my hands. I also began experience intense pain in my spine. I started pain medication at that time. I have gone to numerous doctors, and had lots of tests, and everything has been normal. I had the nerve conduction study, several MRIs, X-rays, blood tests, sensory motory exam. I have been to the pain clinic, a neurologist, and auto-ammuine specialist, a chiropractor, a physical therapist and a psychologist. I haven't had any major changes in symptoms not related to medication changes. I am still very tired. Occassionally I have had pain spasms. My balance is off, and concentration can be lacking at times. My sleep is questionable, as I do wake up often at night, though until recently, always went back to sleep. I don't have the trigger points associated with fibromyalgia. Any help and/or feedback is most appreciated.
