I have been sick for almost a year now, and have no diagnosis, I know the pain is very real and I am not crazy. At first my rheumatoid level was high then it went down,. my white blood cell count is high,(another doc said lymphocytes were high, is this the same thing? red low, and yesterday was told my lymes test was considered negative because only one band(doesn't that mean it was in my system at some point?)
I have severe jointpain and fatigue, get shooting pains in my head and my feet feel as if I'm walking on glass.Get low grade fevers,and my muscles are getting very weak. The newest thing is my armpit absolutely is killing me. Can't take this much longer, and need to know where to turn or even a clue as to what is going on. I have been asked if depressed,of course I am the pain is so intense and so constant I am merely a shadow of my former self, but that came after the pain not before. Anyone have any ideas?
