For the past 10 years, on and off, i have been complaining about symptoms to my Dr. Extream fatigue, no libido, weight gain, dry skin, hair shedding, and now,my bones/muscles/joints ache so badly i feel like i have the flu, but i don't, and, i have had sores in my nose on and off for weeks....they won't go away. They itch and throb.
After many years old blood work, and everyone telling me i'm "fine, many wrong diagnosises, many trips to the psychologist, many antidepressants, antibiotics for chronic sinus infections......I started doing some of my own research.
I finally found myself at the neurologist, because no one else would help. I couldn't get into an endo, and from what i hear, there arent any rheumo's around. I went to see the wonderful neurologist, and she gave me the dx of fibromyalgia. She gave me cymbalta, and told me to take it to see if it makes me feel better. She told me to see the sleep dr, since im sleeping too much.
I went to see the sleep dr., and of course he wanted to do a sleep study, and a nap study.
The endocrinologist had a xcellation, and was able to get me in today. I called the neuro, and asked them to fax me my lab work that was taken last friday. I got a copy, an there was a lot of things pending, but the ANA choice was postitive. I know that is a "Lupus" test. I almost had a breakdown. I have no cried in years, bt i was a basketcast at work.
All this time I swore it was my thyroid. I went to see an endo in 08, and he told he Hashimotos, but he didn't want to treat it.
I went to the endo today, and he told me that it wasn't lupus....not today. Basically, he told me that my diet was crap, i was overweight(i have put 14 pounds on since July) and that i needed to eat well, exercise, and "give in" to sex more often with my husband.
I am a 28 year old female. I feel like i'm 80. My 4 year old tells me "mommy, all you do is sit around..." The neuro says it's fibromyalgia, and that there is something going on with my thryroid from all my symptoms, but the endo says i'm just fat. The endo told me not to let anyone give me a dx, because on paper there is nothing wrong.
I still have the symptoms, and a positive ANA test, but hes saying i'm just overweight?!?!? WTH? Any light that someone can shed for me? Is my ego just brusied?
I'm 28, 5'3'', and 158 pounds.....
