After visiting several doctors I still do not have a diagnosis

Customer Question

After visiting several doctors I still do not have a diagnosis for my symptoms and am feeling very discouraged. I have had the following symptoms for over a year: severe burning in hands and arms after a few hours of alternating between typing and repairing circuit boards. Additionally I have severe fatigue and stiffness all over my body when I wake up. Often I have severe pain in my neck and back but primarily in upper arms and hands. The neurologist cannot find anything neurological. Had a normal neck MRI. Was on prednisone for several months with no relief, and also tried cymbalta and an antimalarial medication. Anybody have any ideas? I am 25 and feel little to live for.
