I have been dealing with fatigue for the last 10 years or so. It has steadily progressed in the last five years to muscle and joint pain, muscle fatigue, dizziness trouble breathing, and periodic severe chills. Within the last year I have now added stomach problems with sugar and lactose intolerance. I have always had problems with being cold and have varicose veins as well as permanent bruising on my legs. So far a rheumatologist has said fibromyalgia for the pain (which I have found, after talking to many people, to be something that is an effect of another illness) and my family practitioner, an immunologist, hematologist and disease specialist have ruled out basic stuff as well as virus', lupus, hereditary angioedema and any of the more serious stuff like cancer, thyroid, etc. This has been going on for so long, but the symptoms seem to be getting worse and/or something new has sprung up. Please help!!
