30 yr old female, with chronic pain for about 3 yrs.

MRI, EMG, Thyroid panel, HIV, CHol, and BS all normal..The dr's here have ran several diff types of bld work and cant figure it out. My massage therapist suggest fibromyalgia...My fly dr believes this is poss and wants me to see a rheumatologist....I feel like im gonna be broke before they figure it out

Feet/legs:several isolated spots of bruising like pain; numbness at times running upward, the fat pad in my foot arch hurts like I stepped on a rock. Also feel burning sens.
Every morning my right side hurts alot for about an hour
I also tend to be fatigued a lot and have back and neck pain.

I take tylenol for the pain --no nother meds--the dr's have tried putting me on rx meds but I cant function on the meds.

I gained over 40 lbs. about a year after the pain began...I dont know if this is a contributing factor or just because I hurt too much to be as active.
