Hi everyone,

I have swollen joints in my ankles, hands and back, which has been recurring since I was about 11, I'm 26 now, it's pretty painful, and when I went to the rheumatologist, all the blood work was normal, and the x rays showed swelling but nothing else. I also have dizzy spells which no one could figure out as well, like I'm going to pass out a few times a day, where I become somewhat confused (I've had coworkers think I was a drug addict because I was so out of it) The explanation of I don't know what's wrong doesn't seem to work for some people. Anyways, any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

  • Megan.. I have an idea! Please find NAET/Bioset therapy in your area and go!! I was sick for years until I found this forum. Someone here recommended this therapy and I went. My symptoms are 90% resolved.I had SEVERE joint/muscle pain and the dizziness to the point of almost fainting. You are not alone. There are so many here in this forum with your symptoms. Like you, no docs could figure me out either. They told me I had cancer. They were wrong. I have chronic fatigue syndrome. The neurologist who diagnosed me told me that patients were finding help in the "alternative medicine" realms. He was talking about this treatment. I promised that if I got better, I would come back to this forum to help others. Well, here I am. Hope this helps...If you let me know where you live, I will help you find someone in your area. Take Care and God Bless,mommy cat:)

  • Megan do you eat Corn? do you wear silver jewelry? Intolerances to these 2 things cause joint pain.
