I am a 26 year old female from Australia who would like some advice, all my life i have suffered from joint and muscle pain in my legs, as a child i have seen many doctors, physios and naturapaths who had told me that it was just growing pains. when i was 18 i contracted glandula fever also known as Mono, this no longer shows up as active on my blood tests although i dont feel i have ever recovered from it. Now that i am older i have almost constant pain in my back neck and shoulders, i get headaches alot and i have symptoms of irratable bowel syndrome not to mention i am always tired and lethargic which is not relieved by rest or sleep (what i would do to wake up feeling refreshed). My main issue is that i want to find a doctor that understands this condition so that i can be tested for it instead of constantly seeing doctor after doctor who just tell me i have depression and try to push anti-depressants on me. I am sick and tired of everyone thinking i am a lazy hypercondriac and that there is nothing wrong with me as my blood test and xrays have all come back clear. I did once have a doctor tell my that cfs was a possability but he never went onto actually diagnose me with it (this is how i first found out it existed). I do believe i may have this condition but i dont want to say i have without being diagnosed by a doctor. Any advice or support would be great as i want to know if i should continue seeking this diagnosis and how i should go about doing so.
