I wish I could help you other than to tell you a lot of us go through episodes like yours and some seem to stay that way. The mornings are hard for me with stiffness, soreness, headaches and then again in the evening. I just took two Excedrin about an hour ago just for some relief from all of those before I go to bed. It's good you had blood work done to at least eliminate some possiblities. I hope it included hemaglobin and iron levels. I went through a bad time last year before being diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia. The two doctors were no help until I almost couldn't function. I can relate to the indifference of the doctors. It seems to be a common theme in this forum. I have learned to be quite vocal with them now that they know they blew it when it came to the last anemic episode. My family doctor was good to provide scrips for every complaint but he nor my GI would put 2 and 2 together for a diagnosis. Do not feel bad about calling the doctors. It is their profession to cure or to alleviate suffering. It seems they just need to be reminded of that sometimes. I do hope you feel better soon.
