For the past month I've been having chronic joint pain....first started in lower back which It spread the weeks after. At this point I feel crippled in the hands. Every joint hurts, my hands are the worst. My back aches, my chest aches, taking deep breaths hurt. It feels like pressure on my chest. My ribs hurt. My stomach feels like it has hunger pangs and my abs ache. My jaw is now starting to feel sore and tender and I now have a dry cough in which my lymph nodes are swollen and my voice is hoarse. I get dizzy and feel like Im going insane and crazy. Im fatigue, weak and tired. I feel like my hands and head are shaking and twitching? The pains sometimes are sharp and most of the time they just feel like a burning aching soreness. I also get nausea and feel sick to the stomach. Some days are better than others. I also have acid indegestion. I went to the doctor and she told me is was probably stress and gave me a anti depressant to sleep?? She took lab work for RA and lupus...but they came back normal??? I dont know what the heck I have..but im in constant pain and it's unbearable. Does anyone know what i have or what should i do?
