Can you help me?
My symptoms: The last week of August I began getting odd symptoms. I had an upset stomach with mild nausea. I had shooting and achey pains all over, but they are mainly concentrated in my upper body like my chest, arms, and abdomen. I have a history of migraines, but I got a new headache that is localized to my temples. I developed fatigue that doesn't get better with rest, and short term memory loss. My husband would remind me of something like him playing with the cat the night before, and it would take me over 30 minutes before I can recall a snippet of that. My menstural cycle also became later, and I'm not bleeding while sleeping at all which is really odd. In September I developed unexplained, low grade fevers, and sometimes I would get shakey and overly anxious for no reason. I developed shortness of breath with physical activities that used to be, and shouldn't be a problem... like walking up stairs. I became thirsty quite often- I used to drink 3 bottles of water or so on days I worked out, and maybe 1 on days I didn't. Now I haven't worked out since I became sick because of the pain and fatigue and I drink 3 or 4 bottles a day. My pulse rate increases to over 100 sometimes, and sometimes my blood pressure raises for unknown reasons (at least to me). I also developed increased sensitivity to cold and touch. I don't like anyone to touch my skin now just because a poke hurts, and laying my forearm on a cold desk hurts as well. In October, my muscles became stiffer, and I had increased neck and back pain along with increased joint popping. Then, I developed blurred vision. I don't know then whether it was in one or both eyes, but now I have discovered it's just in my right eye. I noticed this because one night I was in a lot of pain, and had a headache at my right temple that was also behind my right eye. I felt a 'pop' and the next morning my right eyelid was drooping. It's still drooping now in late November. This causes my pupils to be different sizes, and now my night vision isn't good at all with the blurriness. I also have a dull ache frequently behind my eyes, but it could be because I haven't gotten to my eye doctor for a new prescription now that my right eye vision has changed. I also noticed in October hand pain and stiffness, as well as an overwhelming lack of motivation. Many times I can't say anything to myself to get me out of bed, no matter what important thing I have to do or person I have to meet with. In November I noticed slightly more joint pain, and some facial pain in my cheeks. I've also noticed increased rib pain, but it could be the pressure of wearing my bra all day since touch bothers me so much. Just today I noticed a tender point on the right side of my sternum, that if I press is a 10 on a scale of 1-10.
To sum up: My worst symptoms are fatigue, muscle pains all over, and new headaches, but I have other random symptoms as well.
I've already been tested for : lupus, lyme disease, anemia, hypthyroidism, hypoglycemia, lead poisoning, gallstones, ms, and infections.
Tests performed: multiple blood and urine tests, 2 CT scans (one with contrast), chest x-ray, PFT, ultrasound, Hida Scan with contrast, Colonoscopy
Tests to be performed: 2 MRIs (one with contrast), EEG
So far every test has turned up negative. Most doctors have dismissed me as just stressed and that's why I'm experiencing all of this, but when I got sick I was as far from stressed as ever. Since becoming sick it's been very stressful, but that doesn't explain my initial symptoms, which are my worst (besides the eye thing maybe). My doctors really haven't given much, other than just saying everything on paper looks fine. Any ideas that anyone on here could give me?
