I am a 29 year-old female with several different problems. 2 years ago I lost my job and as a result I got constipation, tingling fingers on my left hand, and swollen lymph nodes around my throat. A couple of months later I was called back to work, but the symptoms did not disappear. Then exactly 1 year later I was laid off again. This time I developed an itchy, burning rash around my mouth, nose and on my eyelids, sore neck, sore left elbow, severe constipation, depression, headaches, colds nonstop, forgetfullnes, moody, very tired all the time, tingling and burning sensations on my upper back, and now before my period I get sore lumpy breast , menstral cramps, and swollen joints (knees & elbows).

I sought the help of an herbalist who told me I had parasites and my body was toxic. He put me on a diet, made me do a colen cleanse, and gave me several other herbs to help my organs. The rash disappeared, I got back my energy, and I felt much better. Now my fogginess thinking and moodiness are slowly beginning to come back and joint pain has worsened. I have done a thyroid test twice and it was normal. I went to a Gastroenterologist who said I have IBS and no parasites. Recently my reg. doctor said it is from stress and depression. I am now beginning to take some Lexapro. It makes me sleepy and kind of sick at my stomach. I might end up buying the herbs that the herbalist had me on for stress. I have an appointment to see an endrocrynologist. But I feel that I might have fibromyalgia. Please help.
