Here is my story, I'll try to make it brief.

16 yrs old got chlamidya--had cold sore on neck---severe stomach pains that eventually went away. (got Chlamydia treated)
17 yrs old got severe case of dizziness went to ER--labrinthytus sp??
(--had reaccuring dizzy spells once in awhile for about 7 yrs or so)
muscles started aching, feeling tired, joint pain, dizziness more frequent (couple times a day), zit like sores on vaginal area. Ignored symptems thinking it was in my head (like the doctors told me).
24 yrs old started dating a guy....he started getting same symptoms (ESP frequent dizzy spells)...went to DOC tested for stds, came back neg. Dismissed symptoms in BF thinking it was mental.

I have since had vision changes (floaters, blurry off and on vision) my dizziness is unbearable and constant (sometimes can barely work/function), pressure in head, popping in ears, terrible joint pain (knees etc), chest pain (feels like pulls/pinches in my left side heart area). I've gotten a battery of tests done over the years and the only thing the DR's came up with is menieres disease from an ENT that I went to. This is ruining my life and it feels whatever this problem is, it's getting worse. I'm scared and to top this off, my fiance of 5 years is slowly getting the same symptoms....

Also, currently, I have a lump on the back of my head that is sore along with everything else.....

I need help!!!

  • have you ever seen a rheumatologist and have they ever tested you for fibromyalgia? I have a lot of the same symtoms and have had every diagnosis under the sun it seems.
