I'd like to find a physician (rheumatologist) who is good at diagnosing unusual conditions! Or at least willing to help me figure this out! Here is my direct email if you can help me! I'm at baby00blues@cox.net.

My main symptoms now are dry skin, dry hair, dry eyes, rashes, thinning hair, joint pain without swelling or redness, intermittent pain in my finger tips (no numbness, no tingling, no color changes - just stabbing pain in finger tips & some times toe tips), internal itching in my right breast, and lack of energy. The weirdest part is that it's like my body doesn't distribute moisture properly?!? Like its dehydrated but I drink plenty of water & my urine is never dark.

ANA test came back abnormal. Tests of the kidneys, pancreas, and liver are all normal. Tests of cholesterol, thyroid, and diabetes are all normal. Tests of rheumatoid factor, sed rate, and C reactive protein are normal.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read through this!!!
