In March of 2007, I got a headache that wouldn't go away. This continued for a few months and then I began having sore stiff muscles and joints. I gained almost 50 pounds and continued on like this for over a year. i went to many specialists and the only thing they could ever find in my blood work was low vitamin B12 levels and slightly raised platelets.

In June of 2009, I began having frequent bouts of diarrhea and severe upper abdominal pains. I lost 56 pounds and in turn was given and abdominal/pelvic ultrasound. The results of this showed nothing abnormal except a cyst in the uterus ad a cyst of the left ovary. I have had menstrual irregularities often after having my second child.

Does anyone have any ideas??

Thanks so Much!

  • Have they done a CAT scan on your head? If not, have them do that.
