    Chronic Pain with No Diagnosis

    Iíll try to give a basic overview.

    I am a male in my early twenties and have been suffering with health issues for about 8 years now. Iíve never been an extremely healthy person, but it has progressively gotten worse over the years. When I was in my early teens, I started getting chronic ocular migraines, and would go through periods of getting a migraine daily.

    Then a few years later, I had rapid progression with what appeared to be subcutaneous rumors, and actually ended up being diagnosed as a rare condition called Granuloma Annulare. This condition is not supposed to have many symptoms and should be easy to live with but I obviously have something else going on.

    I have chronic pain, fatigue, lethargy, brain fog, headaches, upset stomach, weight loss, and occasional dizziness. I have been seeing doctors and healthcare professionals for YEARS and they canít come up with anything. Iíve been through countless blood tests, ultrasounds, CT scans, X-Rays, and even a brain scan, but still nothing ... theyíve checked for diabetes, arthritis, Addisonís disease, thyroid abnormalities, IBS, etc. and just crickets.

    To say Iím burn out is an understatement but as the symptoms slowly worsen Iím persistent in finding some answers. Iím just dumbfounded as to what could be going on but Iím curious to see if anyone has some potential insight.

    Any thoughts are appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi Timewaster001,

    Did any of your doctors check you for food allergies? Sometimes health issues can arise from foods like wheat and/or dairy.

    Being overweight, too many high calorie, high sugar, high sodium, low fiber processed foods can lead to many different autoimmune diseases. Of course there may be other lifestyle issues contributing as well, like stress, lack of exercise and sleep.
