Hey Guys! I've been having trouble getting a doctor who can put the symptoms into a diagnoses. They all fluster and end up putting me on anti inflamatories and pain meds. I'm not even filling the prescriptions anymore. I make myself a hot water bottle and jostle it between all the aching parts. Here's the short and long of it:

Last year September I started with headaches. They became worse. I saw 2 specialists. Both prescribing anti-inf and pain meds.
Picked up 25 kgs in 6 months. No dietary changes. Started exercising.
Bust grew 2 cup sizes in 2 months. Not sore.
Lymph nodes under arms swollen. Not sore.
Last two weeks, pain in left knee, right shoulder, and muscle spasm between my flanks.
Low grade fever(37.8-38.9C)
CRP 8.5 (when last checked)
What is bottling me is that as time goes by, more symptoms come. Not fast, but still. Any suggestions?
