Believe it or not - the pain in legs could be fro lack of calcium. Have u tried this? Also, you mentioned IBS symptoms, do they happen to correlate w your cycle? I had same symptoms before hysterectomy for endometriosis. Gone now ..but replaced w alot more! Drs don't like to rush to conclusions in young ppl & without labs to confirm diagnosis they are probably right to do so. Have u had an ANA test? (Anti Nuclear Antibody) - confirms auto- immune disease.
