I am desperate for answers... it all started almost 2 years ago. I began having horrible chest pain out of the blue, same story as many, went through all the tests on my heart and its all came up excellent. i'm a 26 year old male in pretty good shape so that wasnt a surprise. Doc said it was costocondritis and sent me home with Ibuprofen . this went on for months, but the pain would be all over my rib cage, the front back and sides would ache. Then i began getting horrible rib pain, shortly after that i was getting pain in my neck and jaw and chronic headaches. about a year ago my doc sent me to a nearo thinking i had MS.. they did an MRI and spinal tap both of which were clean.
this went on for a year until 6 months ago i also started getting really bad restless leg syndrome and horrible pain in my legs. my doc sent me to a general health specialist who ran every blood test he could think of. in the teats they found, slight vitamin D and Iron defficiency. They also found elevated inflamation markers and positive Ana markers although apperntly they wernt very high.
the doc put me on Cymbalta and is sending me to a rheumatologist but the waitlist is over a year... im feeling absolutley depressed for the first time ever and im about to be a father 😦 can someone please give me some thoughts or answers or ideas. i cant live with pain all over my body, its tearing me apart.
thanks for your time.
