what could this be?

Posted , 5 users are following.

for about 10 years now (currently 24) i've had these random weird pains all throughout my body. it's usually not a daily thing and i can sometimes go like a month or two pain free. but when i say random.. i mean random. it could be in my shoulder/arm one day and my big toe on the other side of my body the next. i haven't noticed anything that causes it and eating healthy and what not doesn't seem to help. i'm bad at explaining the pain so give me a break here but it's like a constant painful ache that goes through the muscle all the way to the bone. it usually occurs in my shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, feet, & even my butt.. lol. i've had blood tests done and went to specialists and everything. i've looked up the symptoms before but none of them seem right. it doesn't hurt if someone touches the painful area or anything. in fact it feels so good that i usually end up with bruises on my body from pressing and massaging that area too hard.. the closest i've gotten to a diagnosis was that i "have some kind of autoimmune disorder" .. which brings me here. if anyone has any idea on what this is.. please let me know.

    How did you assume that your symptoms are from autoimmune disorder?

    Do you have Joint Pain or skin rashes

    i'm supposed to go see a specialist soon, i just turned 26 a few days ago.. they found something wrong with my blood? something like AA or ANA i really don't remember.. it was really confusing to me. but my doctor told me that i do have some kind of auto immune disease.. they just aren't sure which one? the pain hurts a lot. i'm tired of being in pain. if anyone has any sort of idea on what it could be... please, tell me.
