Hey all, Im 29, female and new here. Im FINALLY gonna have health insurance in less than 2 weeks, and Ill finally be able to figure out whats wrong with me, atleast I hope so. But until then, any opinions are welcome!
About a year ago, my PCP told me I have fibromyalgia. He wouldnt really do any blood work, because I didnt have health insurance and he didnt want to put me in the poor house. He said from what they did do, he doesnt think hes lupus, RA, or thyroid. But Im not sure, my aunt and co worker both have lupus, and told me u dont always have a positive if u have lupus, sometimes its only when u have a flare. Im not sure what is wrong, but Im going to list some of my problems, hoping someone will say "that sounds like me"
*Bowel probs, diarrhea/constipation
*skin bumps (lil raised bumps almost pimple like) when the sun hits my arm
*rash on my neck (right side) comes and goes once every month-every other month
*SEVERE pain and stiffness in the mornings. I have a lot of trouble walking, bending over, or sitting. My feet, ankles, knees, legs, hips and lower back are always killing me and stiff.
*tingling in my hands
*Exhausted but trouble sleeping, or falling asleep.
