I wanted to add that in the six years of this I have not tested positive for autoimmune disease.  Yes I read about the doctor here who feels that these symptoms could be a bacterial or viral infection.  The only problem is my doctor does not believe it and nobody is willing to order these blood tests.

So I am curious if anyone else is suffering these symptoms?

I also have Raynauds - forgot to add that to the list.

Please google scleroderma and inspire. There is a sight that focuses on scleroderma. They have a very helpful and supportive group of folks.

Raynauds is often the first symptom of scleroderma. I don't have the exact list of symptoms you are describing and I am still in the catagory of undifferentiated connective tissue disease. But the symptoms you are describing especially the raynauds and "sunburnt skin feeling" and some others sound possibly suspicious. (The painful fingernails probably go along with the raynauds.)

I know how frustrating it is to not have answers! Hang in there! Hopefully it will never be so "bad" as to own up to a diagnosis. At least that's what they tell me:)

Oddly enough I have raynauds syndrome and a few of your symptoms too.  I have had more yeast infections in my meager 18 years than my mom has had in her whole life of 52 years. I am also experiencing and extremely itchy, flaky, oily, scalp with thinning hair that my dermatologist believes to be dermatitis.  I have also struggled with lower back pain in my life and I suffer from an odd amount of foot/toe cramps that cause my toes to curl. I'm desperately searching for answers.  I have recently begun to think that I suffer from a form of scleroderma.
