Hi, azheart, and welcome! I'm glad you found us and joined in.
Much of what you describe could be fibromyalgia. Check out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum. There are links to good info about fibro, including a list of symptoms. You might see yourself there! Also, fibro is triggered by a myriad of things...including things you have gone through. For me, I didn't have anything that I can think of that happened. I was watching television when it hit me!
It's important to find a doctor that does treat fibro patients. Ask before you schedule an appointment. They will run you through tests to rule out other illnesses first before giving you a diagnosis. If you do have fibro, they will be able to work with you and not just "fluff" you off like you are a mental case. Yes, there still are doctors out there that believe this is all in our heads.
I'm glad you found us and joined our fibro family. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. Let us know what you find out, too. We really do care. I hope to hear more from you soon.
