Hi I had similar symptoms about a two years ago -- I was diagnosed with an advanced case of lyme disease. I am much better now but had been misdiagnosed for many years. Find lyme literate doctor. Insist on testing and retesting if necessary. My first test came back negative, the following three tests came back positive for lyme (there are number of different bactaria-- not just the more popular one. I saw Dr. Norton Fishman-- he is excellent and changed my life. Look up Burruscano (not sure of spelling). He has published a lot. Many doctors are not lyme literate and overlook symptoms or think they can be treated by a few weeks of anti-biotics. However-- do you research first and if you have a doctor that doesn't listen get a second or third opinion. Good luck to you.
