which has been steadily getting worse since it started about 3 yrs ago (after years of chest infections - she is an asthmatic, and finally a tonsillectomy and then Glandular Fever). She also has IBS and was recently in hospital where she was initially diagnosed with Crohns Disease. Then Campylobacter bacteria infection was diagnosed (symptoms mimic Crohns). She rang me this morning in tears from the pain - nothing seems to help. She saw a Rheumatologist last week who confirmed that none of the many blood tests (anaemia Vit D level cholesterol gluten intolerance all types of arthritis etc) had shown a negative result and that the X-rays of all the joints (ie shoulder neck wrist pelvis knees ankles etc) showed any sign of inflammation or damage therefore didn't know what could be done! Except maybe be admitted to hospital for more intensive tests/scans etc. A week ago my daughter started on a low dose of Amyltryptelene and also diclofenac but all her pains seem to be worse. Any suggestions of who she could turn to for help - she is desperate!!! She is unable to function normally and cannot go to work like this. Over the years the level of pain and where it is centred has been very variable but know it is everywhere.
