Ok, here's my short story.I'm a 38 year old husband and father. Always was very active. It started out about 3years ago with bad headeaches in back of my head.Never history of them before. With that i felt like i was having heart attacks at different times. This lasted about 6 months. ER several times and heart looked good and only what looked like scaring around pituitary gland. Those just dissapear and joint pain sets in like a nuclear bomb. Hits hard everywhere,all joints especially knees and elbows. So bad can barely walk or use arms for about 4 monthes.This started about 2 years ago. With that came bad skin acne on back,upper chest and shoulders and the weird thing about them is that they seem to be mirrored on my body. What pops up on one side pops up on other side in same location.Anyway without prednisone i'm extremely tired all the time. Got spider veins on my lower legs and the skin below my knees gets shinny to my ankles then dry. Below my eyes are really puffy all the time. I have swollen lymphnodes in my neck and under my right arm (they think its my lymph that is swollen) and half the time i feel like i can have a lump in the bottom of my throat,hard to swallow. Have had many sed rate test all come back normal and blood work always normal for years. White blood cells alittle high.Lyme always comes back normal and have been on antibiotics several times through out the last 4 years. I have no health insurance and pay for this all out of pocket.I live on pain pills and prednisone everyday until someday when my doc will probably think i'm an druggie because nobody can find anything wrong with me. My joints hurt so bad i can't do anything without being numb first. I have a couple of little bald spots. Always thirsty and i never get colds or flues or anything like that.All joints pop and crack and all are very sore all the time.Any suggestions?I would appreciate anything anybody has to say.We are open to anything,please. To be ohnest we have a very hard time affording tests and going to the doctor all the time ,for the same test that always lead no where!!!!!!! I FEEL LIKE I'M DIENG:mad:Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
