I think my doctors have given up on me. I have no motivation, not depressed, bone ache, muscle pain, to the point of debilitation. I've had my blood and urine tested dozens of times, have heard the word "normal" until I'm sick of it; have been diagnosed with low blood pressure, the result of overmeds for high BP earlier; have actually had Dengue fever about 2 years ago, often feel like I did then, but no fever; arthritis, don't think so, have no joint pain; depression, have taken meds for "anxiety", but don't have the symptoms of depression; gout, taken the meds; the latest is Epstein-Barr. Have had constant body pain for about 5 years. Had spinal fusion about 10 years ago - L4-L5-S1. Height, 5-10; weight, about 190; 62 years old. Apparently, there is no treatment for Epstein-Barr, so they want to treat the symptoms. They tell me that EB often causes chronic fatigue syndrome, and is very similar to chronic mononucleosis. I don't really believe it. Have taken more vitamins than I care to list, including high doses of magnesium oxide, St. John's wort, tons of vitamin C, have also gone for months with no vitamins at all. No apparent difference. Am apparently allergic to fluoride, as in toothpaste. Causes multiple sores on my gums and inner cheeks, and edema of the jaw and tongue. Would someone please tell me what the heck is wrong with me? Am I nuts? That seems to be about the only available illness remaining.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
