Hey there, I'm new to this new community.
I hate sounding dramatic, but I'm not really sure who to ask anymore, and really would like some answers about my condition. It's not life threatening or anything but it's quite annoying specially cause I'm only 21. I've gone through a few doctors and none had answers because all my blood tests come out with healthy results. Doctor thought it was an autoimmune disease, but I tested negative for ANA, which rules this out according to her. My symptoms are as follows:
-Random joint pain, doesn't seem to be triggered by anything in specific and it affects all my joints. It's severe and it comes as fast as it goes but always returns.
-Extremely sore muscles even when I didn't use them much, gets worse the more I use them, but even by simple things like moving my arms in the air. It mostly affects my back, shoulders and arms. I often wake up feeling like I have been training really hard eg lifting weights even though I did nothing.
-However, I don't feel stiff or less flexible than before.
-Always feel tired and sleepy, but still struggle to fall asleep.
-Can't focus on anything as I used to be able to.
-Frequent bowel problems, swollen, stomach and general guts ache.
-A rash that never goes away on my finger.
So this sounds like this CFS, from what I've seen? Is it a possibility I should mention to my doctor? I'd like to hear your thoughts and experiences, please. Thank you.
