Yeah, it is frustrating when all the test results are normal, I think for two main reasons: we want people to actually believe and understand that we are actually sick; and we hope that whatever's wrong can be identified and treated so that we can just get better! The doctors can't properly treat an abnormality that they're unaware of (because the test results don't show it).
The only things that the health professionals can find wrong with me are:
•slightly high ANA levels (consistent: it was 1:160 two years ago and it is the same now)
•tender points are extra sensitive
•allergies show up on testing
•food intolerances worked out by dietician
•the Occupational Therapists can also find weak nerves and trigger points to work on
Hmm... Never realised that so many of my health problems are actually detectable...
Conditions: Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic pain syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, food intolerances, panic attacks, allergies, dermatitis, low immunity, tinnitus, restless legs syndrome, slight scoliosis, etc.
Possible: celiac, IBD, etc.
Goals: to be an occupational therapist; to explore the world.
