i am a 24 yr old female. in september i began to suffer from severe left abdominal pain. i lost 10 lbs in a week. i had several ct scans, blood work, a colonoscopy and an mri. all they showed was that my kidney & my bowel were swollen, but they could not pin point the cause of the swelling or of my pain.

about two months ago i began to feel as though i was getting the flu. ive had no fever, but i am very achy & terribly weak. i cannot tollerate the cold. i still have intermitten pain in my left abdomin. id wake up in the middle of the night with swollen hands & feet & my body full of painful aches.

currently, the aches & weakness are so severe that i am unable to function normally. i am unable to walk very far. my legs begin to shake & feel as though they cannot support my weight. i have fallen several times. by the evening my neck & sholders begin to ache so badly i cannot hold my head up. im having trouble concentrating & also with remembering some things. i am much more irritable & depressed.

they have done many blood tests & cultures recently, but all have come back normal. i feel that my doctors do not take me seriously, meanwhile my symptoms keep worsening.
