After being given a clean bill health (no Lupus, Scleroderma, MS, only 9 trigger points for FMS) from the Rheumatologist, my GP ruled out Thyroid disorder, B12 deficiency, Hepatitis and lymes. I had a clear head and neck CT w/o contrast. I don't know where else to turn. PLEASE HELP ME!!!
-I have SEVERE CONSTANT muscle pain all over my body . If I rub any muscle in my body, that muscle will be very tender and painful and will feel 'sick'. If I do a repetitive motion too many times, I will feel physically nauseous and that body part will tire quickly. Muscles feel itchy, hot and burning sometimes. Sometimes I will get painful ice pick feelings in my toes and hands.
-facial/ neck/ chest flushing with a drop in blood pressure (I assume) accompanied by malaise and nausea
-nausea (gas and bloating too)
-palpatations in neck and abdomen
-itching all over- even internally
Other incidental findings:
Low platelets (all other bloodwork normal)
Frequent UTI's and vaginal infections
Erythmyalgia of hand
lipomas in lower back
Some of the conditions with such symptoms are fibromyalgia(a disorder classified by the presence of chronic widespread pain and tactile allodynia(pain even on touching) ,chronic fatigue syndrome(often manifests with widespread myalgia and arthralgia, cognitive difficulties, chronic mental and physical exhaustion) ,polymyositis (means 'many muscle inflammation') and polymyalgia rheumatica(an inflammatory disorder that causes widespread muscle aching and stiffness, primarily in your neck, shoulders, upper arms, thighs and hips. It literally appears overnight, but the cause may be a problem with the immune system, perhaps involving both genetic and environmental factors).
Complete physical examination along with investigations like ESR blood, platelet count Rheumatoid factor, creatine kinase,electromyography and muscle biopsy may be needed to make a diagnosis.Pls consult a physician for that.
