Hi there
I am currently suffering with a condition which hasn't been diagnosed professionally, but seems to be M.E. or Fibromyalgia or something similar. First clear symptoms (joint, tendon and muscle pain and stiffness, fatigue as well as unusually high infection rate to name a few) occured just after a routine x-ray showed a lung granuloma. The reason for the lung granuloma was never found, all the extensive diagnostic procedures rendered conflicting or inconclusive results. So I never treated it with antibiotics or anything else. One and a half years after the granuloma was found, and just after giving birth to my first child, the lung lesion had disappeared by itself, only leaving a tiny unspecific looking fibrotic scar. While my lungs are clear now, I have all these other symptoms. Could there be a connection (as in one condition which might have caused all of this including the granuloma) or is it maybe a matter of having strained my body too much and simply being fatigued now? My standard lab results are perfectly normal, but maybe more specific tests are needed (which ones?). Thanks for any advise.
