For the past few years I've been suffereing from chronic pain in my back, ankles and feet, hands and wrists, and to a lesser extent my knees, and lately have been getting an increasing number of muscle cramps which have mostly been affecting my lower legs, back and right hand. I have been to my GP several times without a whole lot of success. Had one referal to rhuematology, one to physio (only 3 sessions) for what they thought might be a slipped disc and have prescribed orthotic insoles to help correct fallen arches. None of this seems to have done any good, and I just get looked at like a time waster every time I go back to my GP. This whole situation has me feeling rather depressed as I know something isn't right, but so far have had no joy with a diagnosis. Rhuematologist tested me for RA and fibro. Blood test came back negative for RA and she said I didn't have enough of the trigger points for fibro even though I display quite a few of the symptoms. All I've been told is that it could be "wear and tear"
Really not sure where to go from here, even though I was so tempted to go back to my GP on an emergency basis last week as stood up and felt as though I was going to collapse with the pain. It is affecting practically every part of my life, but I feel like I'm not being listened to
