I'm 20 years old and for the last 6 mo. I have developed horrible symptoms that will not cease.. i have 8 other relatives each diagnosed with fibromyalgia, arthritis, or polymyalgia rheumatica.. About a year 1/2 ago i underwent pretty bad emotional trauma, a car accident.. anyways i got a bad bacterial infections shortly after (bronchitis, yeast and sinus infections). after that i developed severe veritigo, IBS, migraines, chronic fatigue, restless leg, depression, mood changes, swollen glands (tonsils are huge, even though they were removed when i was 12), tender points, hot flashes, myofascial pain syn. and fibromyalgia. 3 months after this i developed bad pain in my joints. i noticed they were swollen, hot and red. i am fair skinned but i can see every vein. i have horrible circulation, my feet will turn blue and then red. the blood takes alot of time to return if i apply pressure.. sometimes my veins hurt alot when theres alot of blood flow..its hard to explain.. my doctor still just thinks that I have fibromyalgia and im on cymbalta and ultram...it doesnt do anything for the pain. I also dry heave when i first wake up in the morning..help!! i am miserable and i need answers.. I cant see my specialist until the 18th. i havent been able to see him for about 3 months.. i needed financial help..no insurance..

My ana test was double the normal amount..but my sed. rate is normal and im still waiting on the rest of the results. thanks to anyone who actually read all this and i would apprieciate any info or if anyone else is suffering like me out there i would love any input..I live in northern nh and im pretty isolated from the rest of the world..
