My wife has had a lot of rather bizarre symptoms for around two years, and no one have been able to diagnose her. She's had lots of tests and seen several specialists, but her GP has more or less said there is nothing else she can do. At this point, she is frequently depressed and has given up on seeking medical help.

Her main symptoms are:

Frequent numbness, pins and needles, and a feeling of weakness in the arms and legs.
Lethargy and mental vagueness.
Occasional attacks involving shivering and trembling all over.
Feeling very cold, even when the environment is warm.
Nausea and various other stomach problems a lot of the time.

The symptoms seem to vary in intensity over periods of a week or two, though lately they may be getting worse.

The tests have ruled out most of the things we thought it might be - one docter is suggesting Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but he seem unsure, and this does not seem to account for all the symptoms.

If anybody has some suggestion what this might be and what we can do, we would be most grateful.
