I have had joint pain for 15 yrs and it only seems to keep progressing, I feel fairly disabled and physically dysfunctional. I've been dx with hypermobile arthralgia, lofgrens syndrome 5 yrs ago, fatigue since I was 13, severe seasonal allergies, anxiety, trouble sleeping, nausea, headaches, ear pressure, tinnitus, vertigo, sensitive skin. The blood test for sjogrens and others has been negative, but my brother was dx by skin test to have severe dermatitis herpatiformis and has to take meds to control it, so I wonder if that could be related to my issues. I was recently told to take plaquenil but no diagnostic test has proven that is actually what I need. I'm trying to find out if there is any other possible way to figure out a definite dx other than playing guinea pig with pharmaceuticals? Please help, my quality of life and ability to function have seriously deteriorated over last 10 years, and I'm not even 40 yrs old yet!
