Cholesterol is borderline
Hormone and Estrogen tests OK
24 hour Urine OK
Heavy metals poisoning (hair analysis and blood work) OK
Stool sample OK
Intestinal Biopsy OK
Mammogram and ultrasound (this was a separate issue that my Dr wanted me to have checked out) - I have fibroid tumors that need to be removed regularly - otherwise OK.
Thyroid (High for me, but within top of normal range) - All 3 of my sisters have thyroid problems.
EMG-nerve conduction OK
Sonogram of heart = OK 16 motnhs ago (he said I have a small hole in a valve, and I have a slightly enlarged heart. That was 14 months ago...I am going in again Monday.)
MRI of head, neck, and back (upper and lower) - OK 20 months ago.
Current BP 126/81 (was 185/105 about 3 weeks ago...went off Savella then)
Any direction you can provide would be helpful. Something is causing my muscles to be constantly firing, and that constant action seems to lead to constant pain and weakness. I can still walk, but get extremely winded walking from one end of the house to the other. I am always dizzy, always lightheaded, always feel like I have a lo-grade fever, and always ache. I have had 4 different rounds with physical therapy, and the last therapist said "you are weaker than my 85 year old osteopath patients...something is really wrong with you and you need to keep searching until you find it out". Basically all my muscles are just severely fatigued, and I truly cannot exercise, and lose a little more strength each month. Savella aided barely with maybe 10% more energy and 10% less pain, but gave me high blood pressure like Pristiq did. Lyrica seemed to really heighten my peripheral neuropathy. Most doctors throw up their hands. I have not had a muscle biopsy nor a spinal tap. If you asked me, I have some sort of MS or Lupus, but maybe its time for a new MRI since I'm so much worse than 20 months ago when it was taken.
Thanks for your time!
