Concerning my medical condition. 3 years ago i had a depression for some time i started developing some kind of a muscle ache especially in the left hemisphere of my body. These symptoms were relieved gradually, but they still attack from time to time. The pain is usually on my chest, left arm, colon( fullness, movement, diaria sometimes) , my neck and a strange feeling in the left side of my head; sometimes my ear & my cheek. The doctors said they have seen nothing. Sometimes, i suspected a colon cancer problem; i didn't go for a colonscopy but the doctors said that i'm fine it's just filled with gas.Other times, it gets scary when the pain is on the chest; the heart side. I also thought i might be having a heart problem or an arteries problem especially because of the left-side pain and the general fatigue i'm going through . I did the electric heart check , it turned out to be ok as the doctors said.At one time , however, my blood pressue started to go up, and i can feel it sometimes it goes for 3 days. So, what bothers me is the chronic pain i have to go through without knowing whether there 's an answer for it or not.One thing i can't recall ,though, when i took the anti-depressant pills for around 6 months whether the problem was resolved at that time or not.
This is the problem in brief.I hope i can get an answer...............

Hi there, Get a reference from your Dr to see a General Specialist and talk through your symptoms, because I won't go into it here, but I KNEW I was right in having something wrong with me and now am on painkillers for life after 12 years of mis-diagnosis, so BELIEVE IN YOURSELF because it is your body. Don't let them say its mild or that you have Somatization disorder, keep nagging away because it is YOU that counts! Don't be put off by any idiot Dr because I saw more than 20 before they got my diagnosis correct in Australia here. New Zealand Drs had me written off as a Somatizer and I am so glad I've left that pissy little country! Lots of Luck, Pete :)

Is your doctor checking your blood pressure and your blood sugar levels? I had countless symptoms and pains, depression, etc you name it I had it. Thought I was going mad, or had cancer.
