Hi and Welcome Marie!!
I'm glad you found us!! This is a great Forum to gain support and knowledge.
I hate to say it but it could be Fibromyalgia. As Sherrine said, your doctor is taking all of these tests to rule out other nasty illnesses like Lupus, RA, Lyme Disease or MS. Depression is a common sidekick of Fibro, some people have been depressed before the wound up with Fibro, some get depressed as the syndrome continues and some more fortunate folks don't suffer from depression at all. So, as Patsie said, we all have some different symptoms but we are basically the same.
I have: Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, Holt-Oram Syndrome, nasal allergies, food allergies, depression, TMJ, anxiety
Married to a wonderful supportive husband & between us we have 4 children & 7 grandchildren
