: : I am at my wits end. I have tried and tried to find out what is wrong with me to no avail.
: : I have had various blood work done and a few things are out of wack but still no answers.
: : Somedays I feel okay, others I feel like dying. When I feel bad, I feel like I have a fever (but don't), have mild nausea, bad headaches, slight involuntary muscle twitches in various parts of my body, but especially my face. A rash off and on, mostly on the chest or front trunk area. Flaky skin, neck pain at the base of my neck in the back, and extreme fatigue.
: : Other stuff too but thats the main ones. And now my blood pressure has gone up and wants to stay there.
: : I can't take this much more...been going on and getting progressively worse for well over a year now.
: : Please if anyone has any ideas or thinks this could be lupus or some autoimmune illness, let me know.
: : Thanks.
