Know the feeling - my doctor hasn't made up her mind what my symptoms (just like yours) are. Frustrating!!!! Hope you have more luck than me.

I'm sorry that this is happening. I was in a similar situation. Still am but I'm a few years older now and I felt helpless even when they did find out what was going on. But if I'd had this family when i was going through it all, it would have made it much easier!

Y'all are in the right place.

And I promise you that it does get easier to stand up for yourself and to ask for what you need from your family and loved ones.

It also helps to have an awesome support group like this. ;) {did i say that already? 😊 mucho love to everyone 💜}

I feel worse when it rains and weather change. I thought I may have had arthritis but it was lupus. I'm still trying to find a rumey near me. I use heating pads which helps to ease the pain in my joints and back. Also try elevating your legs.

Hope you get answers and relief soon.

If you haven't seen a rheumatologist if suggest that. Start charting every single symptom; when it starts, where it's at, characteristic descriptions (hot, cold, burning, throbbing, shooting, etc), how long it lasts, if something triggered (activity before, during after), what methods of relief you tried and if it helps.

To me it sounds like sjogrens, lupus, or Arthritis. I have Sjogrens and yes, it causes wide spread pain, along with dry eyes, nose, mouth, skin. I also have OA (osteoarthritis). When it gets cold I hurt. It was 36 this morning and I didn't think I'd ever get my feet and hands warm. It warmed to 72, but I was in thermals all day. Besides cold, I can't tolerate hot water, and I've been that way all my life. My hubby and kids wouldn't let me wash dishes because they called my water cold, and to me theirs was scalding. Good luck! You're in my prayers. 🙏🌼

I'm 25 and have had the same problem since I was 8. Just last year did I get to a rhematogist and he told me I had fibro and RA. But that's what they told me to growing up.
