I am 22. Been going to the doctors 2 years now. From a small town. My diagnoses currently is rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. Positive Ana. Low grade fever of 99.2 to 100.3. For 2 years. Facial rash that is redness on checks and nose. Tried rosacea cream that did not help. Going to a pain doctor for joint pain and muscle pain. I have restless leg syndrome. A lot of pain! Can not work. Concentration problems. Dizzyness. Chronic fatigue. Tried lyrica and gabapentine. Hasn't really helped for my fibromyalgia. Been to a family doctor, internal doctor, cancer doctor (for a lymp node but cancer was ruled out), stomach doctor, rheumatologist, and dermatologist. My doctors think it's related to a autoimmune disease. Maybe lupus but not diagnosed yet. I am seriously suffering everyday. Can bearly get out of bed. But I try to excersise 45 minutes a day. Sun sensitive. My doctors want me to go to the mayo clinic. But it's too expensive for my family to go. My view point is my dr is waiting for something bad to happen. So it would be easier to diagnose me. I waited for over 2 years for a diagnoses. I just don't want to suffer anymore. And I just want to live my life to fullest. Any medical knowledge or help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks and have a great day :))
