Don't give up, you know something is wrong, you feel bad. I was corrected on the Lyme results and I know that ANA and such can fluctuate as well. Keep searching for the answers and don't let anyone tell you that it's all in your head. I had classic Gall Bladder pain for 5 years. Nothing ever turned up on ultrasound, or even Hydascan with CPK (whatever that is, but it made me really sick), I was told everything from IBS to Bipolar Disorder. I finally went to a good diagnostic center, they did an endoscope all the way to the GB and found that it wasn't making stones but little crystal shards that were slicing the inside every time it contracted, OUCH! They took it out and end of pain. Sometimes you just have to keep pushing for the answers until someone looks hard enough or like in some our cases, enough symptoms pop up that they can get a definitive diagnosis. I'm right there with you Jesimae, in the diagnosis limbo and I've been there for now for 4 years. Some have been here even longer. I've had enough really bad symptoms, pain, and labs to warrant some pretty harsh treatments and I am now starting to feel the best I've felt in 4 years. Keep on searching for the answers, they are out there somewhere and we are all here for you every painful step of the way. Take care and never give up.

Yeah, I'm not giving up. Just don't know what to do next (or which forum to post to-lol). Going camping with my family this weekend. Gonna relax and take my mind off things (and wear lots of sunscreen).
 
Thanks for your support. Let me know how things turn out for you.

Hey girl! I am so sorry, don't loose hope on figuring out what is wrong. As we all say, you know your body better than anyone else. You know if something is wrong. Since your tests came back normal, what is your doctors next step going to be? Are they gonna keep testing for other possibilities?
