I have never posted anything before now and feel this is the last hope I may ever have in idenifying what causes my chronic pain. I have experienced joint pain, swelling, tenderness, redness, & knots forming in some joints for years. Without my bloodwork revealing any arthritis or disease, I just can't seem to find out what I have and how to treat it. I had food allergies as a child. I've been told by doctors in the past that I have Interstitual Cystitis, Gerd, Irritable Bowel, Fibromyalgia, asthma, Roscea, & osteoarthritis. My symptons besides joint pain, are itchy skin, red skin, pins & needles feeling all over body, tired all of the time, my face is often hot, any change to detergents or soap causes my itchy feeling to worsen, & using lipsticks make my lips swell and chap. And, when I say joint pain, I mean that I think I need to sell my house and move to one without staircases. If I take Ibuprophen 800 mg 2 times daily, I can move better when I am awake, but I am never awake on that much medicine. Does anyone else have the same symptoms and maybe know what my possible diagnosis is from reading my symptoms?
