don't know what to do anymore

Hello, since Nov/Dec 2010, 15 pounds unexplained wieght loss (no vomiting or excess bowel issues), headaches, nurtient loss, confusion, fatigue, painful bones/joints, nausea every morning when I wake.
have since had 10 weeks iron injections-iron levels back to normal.
was referred to internal medicine and dismissed - implied I have eating disorder (which I do not)
recently found out IGG below low...I feel horrible and cant get help to figure out what is wrong here.
any ideas?

Its sounds like fibromyalgia this can cause all these symptoms and more.
cymbalta helped me but that it might be right for you but worth a try .
Its not cheap so I hope you have insurance also see if Dr will run a lupus test on you .
Good luck and HOpe you get to feeling better.

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Unintentional and unexplained weight loss is definitely not good. There are many causes like worms in stool, depression, anorexia nervosa, AIDS, cancers especially colon cancers, drug abuse, infections and loss of appetite. Loss of appetite can again be due to certain medications, drug abuse, depression, AIDS, acute and chronic infections, cancers and hypothyroidism. Either you do not eat well or there is increased metabolism as in hyperthyroid states, HIV, cancer etc. Poor absorption as in irritable bowel syndromes and malabsorption syndromes too is possible. Malabsorption syndromes are seen in intestinal tuberculosis, HIV, tropical sprue, parasites in stool and Whipple’s Disease. Diabetes too can be the cause.
Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral.
Take care!
