My first symptoms started in 2014, after losing a pregnancy at 10 weeks. It started with the pain and burning in my left breast (ultrasound excluded bc), and three months later a dull in my left rib with diarrhea (sorry TMI), after everything I would eat. Did CT (abdominal), lots of tests (celiac, full CBC, hormones-all clear). My symptoms persisted and although I became pregnant in March 2015 (had a successful pregnancy-during which symptoms were minimal), as soon as I delivered, the symptoms were back and worst this time. Severe depression, brain fog, pain under left rib, losing concentration, feeling hot (no fever), feeling severely exhausted, sudden chills... I thought it was hormones and possibly post partum depression but all the labs excluded this diagnosis. Had to move to Europe as hospital bills were piling, lost numerous jobs. In hope to find some thorough diagnosis I retested blood again, hormones, etc. after a bout of a FLU in January this year my blood revealed elevated ESR, fibrinogen, high Ige (limit 87, mine 540), whole body is itching, muscles twitching, burning in left side of chest with pain under left rib cage, sternum, left breast, nipple, all joints cracking with just movement. I feel like I am dying, I can't think straight, I am losing concentration and lacking words. I can't even function properly. I have Hashimoto thyroiditis for over 20 years. (I am 35 yrs old, 190 lbs, 5'9). I would just like to be myself again. chest x ray and Lung CT scan done in September 2016. I don't know where to go, sometimes I feel like this will never end. Depression is severe, and I have to inner drive, happiness. Prior to this I was a very happy, energetic and loving person. I appreciate any feedback and thank you for reading.
