Almost a year ago, I had surgery for a partially ruptured ectopic pregnancy in my right tube. My female parts seem to have recovered OK, but the rest of me has not been the same since.

I have seen almost every kind of specialist you can name and I still don't have a real diagnosis. The only thing any doctor wants to tell me is that I am probably depressed. I'm not convinced!

I have trouble with digestion, bowel movements (one extreme to the next), problems with my heart rate, headaches, joint and mucles aches, night sweats, and never ending tiredness. I do know that all of these things can be related to depression, but I have never had a problem in the past and I have faithfully been on antidepressants since my surgery at my doctors request.

If there is anyone with advice, I'd love to hear from them.
