Hi all, I was wondering if you could help me as I'm so fed up and I think you're the best people to ask! I'm 27 years old and 2 and a half months ago I started getting breast pain, I went to a breast specialist and they said my breasts were normal. A few weeks later the pain spread to my upper back and ribs and I got a tight chest (which comes and goes). Over the coming weeks it spread to my arms, armpits,legs, joints and I even get electric shocks (mostly in my face, but all over) and even occasional pain in my face (mainly chin and cheekbone) as well as my skull. I've had a spine and breast MRI and all my blood tests have been normal. My pain isn't awful and it's not all at once but it's just always somewhere- stabbing or throbbing and it scares me. A couple of doctors have said it's fibro but lyrica and Cymbalta didn't help. Other doctors think I need more tests- the only thing is, I live abroad and I can't afford any more tests as I've spent a fortune. Plus they seem to have ruled out everything serious. I've seen a rhumatologist, neurologist, oncologist, breast doctor and a GP. Does this sound like fibro? I'm so scared and I would really really really appreciate your help.
