I’ve been going to different doctors for 2 years with no results yet. It started with joint pain in my elbows, knees and shoulders (shoulders would actually hurt to touch at times) . It would come off and on. It eventually spread to just about almost all my joints including my hands and feet shins and forearms. I also developed thrush. I have had 5 cbc’s and they keep coming back normal. They have checked me for rheumatoid and lupus which also came back fine. They have also tested for allot of std’s (wouldn’t be applicable because I’m married and not sleeping around and my wife is fine) Pain has been getting worse and still no results. They just keep asking me if I’m stressed, I’m usually not unit they ask me that. Any suggestions anyone?

  • Get tested for Lyme disease. Unfortunately, the best test right now is with Igenex. This will be an out-of-pocket expense, but in your situation it would be a smart move. The Lyme tests that your normal doctor will give you our most often negative, even when a person has Lyme disease.
