    • My first question would be..how old are you?  You have a lot of symptoms and you could be experiencing different ailments..have you seen a Rheumatologist?  They specialize in certain conditions.  Good luck!

    • If you haven’t done so, I suggest that you call the rhemutologist’s office and ask them to call you if they get a cancellation so that you can be seen earlier than May. Good suggestion Plaspak!  

      I pray PEACE in the name of Jesus over your mind and body. Amen

    • I had a problem with iron at the beginning of all this but is fine now..I have not seen a hemotologist. Well if there was something wrong with my bones it would have shown up in MRI or the bone scans that I got done twice..

    • Have you considered giving up on “modern medicine” and gone the route of homeopaths, energy healers, or some other form of non-traditional medicine?

    • i had problems with iron, and despite it now being ok i personally believe iron damage caused my problems.  the best thing i found to help me was to be stringent with my diet.  driven to daily exercise, and reminding myself that things could be worse.  on the days when i felt worse i rested more and took tablets that had shark in them or a honey base.  supplements were taken as well as the correct food.  for me it has been a lifestyle change.  it hasnt been easy, some days are better then others.  i am still here playfully silly, thoughtfully absorbing and just doing what i can - and thats ok cool

    • yes i found no pain killer helped me, if anything it increased my inability to get well.  i looked at alternate methods - shark powder tablets, and a honey derivative worked for me and one other cannot remember.  these products i purchased online from a place called Natural Life.

    • They already tested me for nerve endings and maybe thats why I am having the problems i am having. It feels like my sit bone is digging into me on both sides and my very lower back is aching and my SI joint bothers me when I walk. Plus my legs and feet are swollen but the internist says its not all swelling ..The first internist saw me for 5 minutes and said it was emotional problems at least the internist i am seeing now is taking the time to figure things out. Now that I have my sleeping figured out and have a cpap machine now I going to try to figure out the rest of it. He told me that the rest of my pains may go away as I get better sleep for a longer time and my body is not getting the oxygen to the rest of the body and that I haven’t had a long or deep sleep in 4 yrs so it will take a while...So its just a waiting period right now.

    • Checking up on you...I agree with Tracy, see a neurologist. My sister’s doctor has been key in helping her with her symptoms as she has MS.  I have also seen a neurologist in the past to rule out some of my symptoms.

      Please keep us posted.
