I have chronic pain in my joints, ALL of them. Ankles, toes, knees, elbows, wrist, fingers, ect.
I have been doing tests for two years now.
Doc says it's not arthritis, not fibromialga, and not lupus. So those are the only test they have done. No lime disease either. They took and ex-ray of my foot and said it looked normal, and they said there is no inflammation.
They referred me to mental health. I am taking cymbalta which is an anti-depressant, and pain reliever for people who have arthritis, and other chronic pains.
I am no doctor. But I just can't believe that they can run a few tests, and declare there is nothing wrong.
THERE HAS to be more things out there that could cause this kind of pain. I hurt all day....and it's worse at night when I am trying to sleep.
Has anyone gone through something similar, but with a better outcome? Are they missing something?
