Might I just start by stating that, "You are NOT too young to have such problems & be on medications". I am 25 and as you'll see, major disease had started when I was 16 and am currently taking close to 30 tablets of medication daily.
Unfortunately, inflammatory diseases are an equal opportunity employer! They don't discriminate.
From how you stated the meds you take, it sounds as if you are in the UK? or Canada? Australia?
It is a very important thing to keep a close diary or journal daily of your symptoms. Exactly where, when, what helps the pain, what makes it worse, etc... What you describe makes a lot of sense.
My initial thoughts for the description you wrote were fibromyalgia along with an underlying Crohns or Ulcerative colitis like elcamino had stated.
What next? Think about if you are happy and comfortable w/ your primary MD. That's important. Your pain needs to be addressed whether it be by NSAIDs, non opioid pain killers, opioids, anti-seizure meds...pain is now considered the 5th vital sign and I do truly believe that. Pain is what the patient says it is and doctors are SUPPOSED to listen to what you say...because most times...you cannot see pain.
A consult with a rheumatologist I would recommend. You may need a referel from your regular doc.
It is sad, but sooooooo many times, if you are young....doctors are way too lax in getting involved. I know it all to well.
When is your next doc appt.? and also do you see your GI again?
Eugene, write back soon & let us know how things are going. You have something going on...it might take time, months even to get to the bottom of things....but you'll get there.
A repeat of all bloodwork should be done again, perhaps by a different lab (all are different & some better than others). It is important when a difficult or unclear case of a condition is present, to have consistent labs done to keep track on how things are changing.
You've found a wonderful place here at HealingWell! Very glad to have you. (don't let opposing opinions defer you away! sometimes a "cure yourself" thing is impossible and irrational! )
