Please help me find a diagnosis. I am a 31-year-old women, and have been suffering with severe mood swings since my teens. I have been diagnosed from everything to depression, to bipolar II, to chronic fatigue syndrome. In addition to the rapid mood swings, I have physical symptoms, like tiny stabbing pains that move around my head, brain fog, fatigue, body aches, chills, stomach pain, and sometimes fever and swollen glands. The physical symptoms come and go, but the terrible mood swings are constant. I had strep throat a lot as a child, and had my tonsils out at age 12. I also have had three surgeries for endometriosis in my mid and late twenties. Please help me find a diagnosis. I am so tired of doctors just telling me 'it's depression.' I have real physical, flu-like symptoms at times, and they go away for a time, but always come back. I have been tested for lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, celiac disease, and have even seen an infectious disease specialist, who tested me for numerous infections and viruses. Please help me.
