I have pains in my arms and legs, with raised crp and esr which I am told is that I have an infection in my body some where from my blood test with anemia and feeling tired all the time, the pains hurt more when someone presses or leans on me, my chest bones, shoulders,with swelling,which hurt this has being going on for about 5 years, I have seen two different doctors, all the doctors did was give me blood tests, over and over again no other test nothing,  so I stopped seeing him, the other Doctor just gave me blood tests, then they kept cancelling the appointment so I stop see him  I have not got the confidence to say anything to them, but people I have spoken to who are ill have all sorts of tests, to find out what is wrong with them
As time has gone by I get pains in my bones, and my armpits hurt, both my breast have swelled up like they get before my period, but they have stayed swollen for the passed 6 months, I still get my periods regular, then on the right side I have a lumpy swelling, my GP sent me for a Breast Xray to see if it is cancer, they said there are not lumps so you are fine.
So that one good thing I have not got hard lumps in my breast so I am clear of breast cancer.
My breast are so heavy they are like I am pregnant, I even did a pregnancy test just in case, which is negative.
So I was wondering if anyone has or had simular symptoms, and give me some idea what I am dealing with. sad

  Hi and wecome to HW

I'm not trying to run you off as I'm sure that this is causing you a great deal of concern about your heath and anxiety but there is a forum here on chronic pain they may know more about what kind of tests that maybe done for you and the help that you may need, and as for your anxiety about this we are more then willing to help you with that part of it or if other members know of something about this will reply soon.

I agree with freezing...This may not be the best forum to try. Perhaps read through some of the other forums we have here (chronic pain, arthritis, etc) and maybe you can find the answers for which you search.

I would suggest a mammogram maybe? I don't know..but chronic pain forum is the place to go as the others have suggested.
