I have been sick since march 2009 with bad fatigue, brain fog, horrible knee pains, throughout, the pains have come and gone, the fatigue has lifted considerably, no more brain fog, but this has been replaced with IBS 80-90% of the time, joint pains coming and going in knees, elbows, fingers, I have cut almost all grains, fasted for 10 days, not much help, I lost like 40 pounds also, intentionally, I have malaise everyday... I have been tested for STDs, HIV, Staph, lymes, Thyroid... I basically have had joint pains and malaise with bouts of IBS for close to two years, also throughout the entire time, mucus running down my throat (always, and "inflammed eyes" seem dry or bothersome..).... Its pretty unbareable... any ideas would be greatly appreciated...
I would suggest a visit to a rheumatologist. You might start with an internal medicine doctor, though. There are a lot of things that can cause your symptoms, unfortunately primary care docs may not know much about many of them, including the many, many forms of auto-immune disease.
