For the past seven years, I have had a condition or combination of conditions that have left my completely unfunctional. I am hoping someone here may have further suggestions for finding a diagnosis. I am a 38 year old male. I have been told I have:
Fibromyalgia - three different doctors. I have not had any relief from several medication regiments and often am made worse by them.
Depression - Both Chronic and Bi-polar disorder depending on which doctor I spoke with. Again no relief. I have tried all but 3 medications approved for treating both chronic depression and/or bi-polar disorder. (Lastest psychiatrist evelauted every med I have taken in the past 7 years). Often the medications make the syptoms worse.
Anxiety disorder or agoraphobia Tranquilers help, but don't go far.
Arthritis - Not a single test run by the physiatrist. I have EXTREMELY bad reactions to most pain medications, and the ones I can tolerate do not relieve any pain.
Sensitivity to noise
Occasional low grade fever
Occasional twitching in shoulder
Headache - Often, almost constant
Joint and muscle pain
Chemical sensitivities - Peticuliarly medications
Ear infections - rare but a few times a year.
Chect pains - Upon exertion (I do know I have High Blood Pressure and High Cholesterol)
Occassional swollen glands under jaw sides
Constant need for acidic liquids - I will generally drink an entire jar of pickle juice in a sitting. I also drink a ton of acidic juices. Not that I like them so much, I feel I need them.
Thank you for considering my request. It has taken me over a half hour just to make this post. Before I got sick, I was a computer specialist and programmer. :(
