Joie I am so sorry you are suffering so. This disease can really kick our butts sometimes. First off, depression is not uncommon with this disease, maybe asking the doc for something will help lift your spirits some. Who wouldn't be depressed with this darn illness. Also, I have had this dd for over 30 years, and want you to know that it is always hardest when first diagnosed. I believe in time when they find the right treatment for you, you will once again be able to enjoy life again. Sounds to me with your pain, and touch being painful, that you might be suffering with Fibromyalgia. Many of us suffer from it. You might ask for a referral to a Rheumatologist. I am a firm believer that all of us should have one on board. We not only suffer with Fibromyalgia, but also osteoarthritis or other types of anthralgias. I take B12 shots bi-weekly and they really help with my energy levels. You might want to also get your blood levels checked too, you could be anemic.
I will keep you in my prayers and sure hope you get feeling better soon.
