I am new here. Don't really know where to turn at this point. I know when I had surgery these blogs helped me through it so here I am! I guess I will start at the beginning...about 6 years ago I had a bout with extreme digestive issues, rash and fatigue. I was working a lot and summed it up to that. well I had a fibroid removed in September 2013 and have not been normal since! I have extreme pain and pressure in the left side of my head(had MRI came back normal), constant digestive issues, still have rash(comes and goes, mostly on legs), fatigue(so tired all the time), new symptom is joint pain! in the morning I cant even really bend my right hand until a few hours later. I reduced my high intensity workouts to walking and yoga. I am having a hard time even doing light yoga, my joints are so stiff. My left ankle is always swollen, had to stop walking all together. I have seen about 10 doctors in 6 years. PC did 2 blood test, first I had low blood sugar, high bilirubin and atypical reactive lymphocytes. second came back with positive ANA, very high she said. sent me to 10th dr. a rheumatologist. she rechecked blood and ANA came back negative, said probably fibromyalgia and sent me on my way with steroids and said see you in 2 months! I am so tired of trying to defend myself to doctors and friends. something is very wrong with my body! i have always been healthy. Oh did I mention for a year til present I have been on a strict diet, low-sugar, no-preservatives etc. I feel very alone and scared. I told someone for 4 years something was wrong with my reproductive system. By the time I found a good doctor the tumor was the size of a baseball. I'm very scared that this is happening again, no one believing me, things getting worse. they keep sending me to different doctors for individual symptoms instead of putting them together and figuring it out. I have blown through my savings for all these dr bills. I don't know what to do now. keep suffering in silence????
