I'd love to give your doctor a piece of my mind. 38 - getting old??? Sure, everybody gets aches & pains, but not enough to keep bringing them to the doctor (like you have nothing you'd rather be doing!) I had so many doctors not take me seriously when I was trying to get help, almost 20 years ago now. Don't give up!
I get lightheaded at times too, usually but not always before lunchtime. Shaky, feeling weak, very unpleasant. I still don't know why, but it waxes and wanes like everything else with this weird syndrome.
