For the past 2 years now my skin has been incredibly itchy. I use a moisturizer but my skin's still dry all over.
I don't know what to do.. the itchy sensation is always there and I have to scratch.. but when I do, my skin starts to burn and sometimes even bleeds.
I had a skin biopsy taken two months ago and it showed nothing "special" like celiac's disease or psoriasis.
My doctor also thinks I may have developed endometriosis on top of everything else.
Fibromyalgia truly sucks... I can deal with the pain and stiffness (sort of) but it's all the other symptoms that truly drive me insane..
like LIGHTHEADEDNESS.. How did I get that? I'm only 24 and I have to deal with this feeling like "being on a boat or on a fast moving train". Like I can feel the earth moving when no one else can.
I'm so tired of googling and wondering if I have Lyme's disease or something else they haven't yet discovered (yeah and I've been tested for borreliosis too, at least had that blood test done and don't even remember being bitten by a tick..)
How can you live with this condition and not be PARANOID 24/7?? How can you stop worrying and start living?
It's frustrating going from a doctor to doctor only to hear that "I'm stressed" or "that's a common symptom.."
