Hi. I'm hoping someone here can give me some advice or at least have some insight to what could be going on. I have had these symptoms for years, but its getting worse...
Horrible muscle aches, joint pain, fatigue, chills (feels like I have a fever but I dont,) anxiety, inability to concentrate., horrible lower back pain, headaches, sore throat, sore under my arms ( I think it's my glands), rib pain (if I barely get poked in the ribs it hurts horribly). The aches and chills feel just like I'm coming down with the flu, but I never do.
Some days are worse than others. Somedays I feel OK, some day a I feel awful. I have many of these symptoms on a daily basis, but some of them hit me in "bouts". I'll feel horribly achy and feverish for a few days, then it will get better. Then it will come back a couple weeks later, so on and so forth.
I'm only in my 20s and shouldn't feel this bad. All lab tests have come back normal except low vitamin d, but even when I take a vitamin d supplement, my symptoms don't go away. Last week my Dr mentioned fibromyalgia, but never followed through with anything. People think I'm faking it or that I'm a hypochondriac, but I'm not making this up. Im at the end of my rope and I feel desperate.
Does this sound like fibromyalgia? Can anyone give me any advice?
