Unhappy Left sided Body Pain

I am a 27 year old female, who, for the last 2 years has had left sided pain. At first it started in my neck/ shoulder area but not it is in most of my left side joints and bones including neck, shoulder, hip, lower back, hip, and ankle. Additionally, I have sore muscles in the hamstring area and recently a lump in my left breast. I also have a sore throat on and off and am quite often fatigued. Testing I have had done so far is xrays and MRI's on hip, shoulder, neck and back- nothing found. A full arthritic panel from a rhumetologist- all normal, a stomach and intestine biopsy to test for celiac- normal. I also had the lump tested and it is "nothing" I have hypothyriodism which is tightly managed. I got to an endocrineologist every 3 months and get blood taken every 6 weeks to ensure we are not adding thyroid problems into the mix. Thyroid levels are normal. I have a family history of autoimmune diseases including Lupus and RA but the tests from the rhumetologist all came back negative. At this point I am at a loss. I am active and work out on a regular basis (i also teach PE.) I am not overweight, don't smoke, drink occasionally and eat a gluten free diet. I have not had any major trauma or broken any of the bones that hurt. It is very frustrating because no dr can tell me what next or even what I have but I don't think this is normal. Does anyone else have symptoms like this?

Re: Left sided Body Pain

Yup. I actually have Graves Disease. It's not my thyroid. I've lived with thyroid problems for over 10 years and it is well managed. blood every 6 weeks dr every 3 months.
