I have recently (past month) been experiencing awful joint/bone(?) pain especially in the hip, sweating during the night but being cold a lot of time during the day, noticeably losing more hair than I would normally, infrequent chest pain when breathing, weight loss (3-4kg since April), periods of extreme fatigue but now suffering from insomnia, itchy skin and dry patches on upper arms/back, blurrier than usual vision, small red bumps irking on upper arms/neck and face that are itchy.
Sorry if its a lot but i'm getting concerned and getting no answers from GP, being told i have anxiety and should deal with that when I am fully aware that what I'm experiencing is physical.
I did have blood tests/an x-ray done in A&E on tuesday when i went in concerned about the chest pains, x-ray clear but D-dimer results came back positive so they suspected a blood clot on the lung due to the pain....CT scan next morning showed no clot so discharged. Would the blood tests done have included ANA? I didn't ask at the time because i hadn't considered this.
