Mast cell disorder,hiatus hernia, Asthma ,cc and cataracts

I believe that I have most of the symptoms of ME, as per the latest criteria, i.e. ICC and IOM/SEID; however, after seeing Fibromyalgia diagnosis on my records or being told that, no doctor has even been willing to discuss possible M.E. They don't take that seriously and it has been a long uphill battle. I have asked for a tilt table test, 24 hr heart monitor, etc. for more than one year and changed doctors. The doctor overrode my clear suggestion that I seem to have an orthostatic intololerance condition, did not read the NHS own guidelines about what should be done in that case, and sent me for heart x-ray and 5 min ECG. After getting results of that, told me my heart 'can stand the stress' whatever that means, and prescribed statins as my total cholesterol was slightly raised. I have gone to a third gp and requested specifically to be seen by a cardiologist on the list of POTS clinics by name. Only then did I have any attention whatever paid to my symptoms. I have had symptoms of POTS, unexplained fainting, and symptoms of EDS for years. The Fibromyalgia diagnosis, while I know it is a real illness, has been a hindrance in dealing with doctors, all of whom do routine blood tests and tell me all is normal. I am mostly bed bound, and still being treated like someone they'd rather not deal with. I was so grateful to finally be heard and referred to a specialist in POTS, who diagnosed also EDS. It seems to me that a patient who has actually read the NHS website and pinpointed what investigations and treatments need to be done, has about a 50/50 chance of either being treated with contempt for claiming to have a clue about what causes their extreme disability, or alternatively be sent to a specialist who knows about their illness. In my case, it is a variation of the contempt, with just silence when I ask questions or want a referral, etc. They do not want to discuss it. I was lucky to have one GP in my current practice who was willing to refer me to the nearby POTS clinic. Otherwise, I would continue to be told 'all your tests are normal'.

Alongside EDS I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, raynauds phenomenon, achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, sleep apnoea, supraspinatus calcification, diverticulosis, chronic paroxysmal hemicrania, kyphosis, vit d defiency, tinnitus, pes planus, rectocele, cystocele, chronic anaemia, migraine, ganglion cyst, sebcutaneous eczema (I suspect this is a misdiagnosis and that it's actually sjogren's syndrome). I'm also under investigation for Ankylosing Spondylitis.

Celiac Disease, Migraine, Anxiety, Allergies and possible Endometriosis

Bursitis, bipolar disorder, Raynaulds, hip dysplasia, vitamin D deficiency, migraine, chronic UTI. I think that's about it!

Hi, I just found this site so thought I would join since I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, hypermobility type. I answered this poll and for my other conditions, I have chronic fatigue but has not been diagnosed as CFS. It's just part of EDS picture. Also have bronchiectasis, believed by some researchers to be related to EDS. Also migraines. There are more, but those are the most disturbing.

I'm going to browse for a while. It's always fun to find a new support site. Thanks.
