Hi, I am new to this board actually this is my first time on any board. My first visit was earlier this week. I am in my 30's and have been suffering for many years. I am so very tired, I hurt all over, even my skin hurts. My back and RT. shoulder give me the most trouble. I do not currently have a diagnosis but FMS has been tossed around at the dr. offices. I suffered from a bad case of oesteomylitis(bone infection) of the clavicles when I was in my 20's. I also have severe asthma and take 5 medications for it alone. Finally got a doctor to give me something for my pain and soon will be going to MAYO CLINIC. I take Ultram and vioxx now. I also can't sleep at night, I wake up in pain and can't get comfortable. I take Remeron and Tylenol PM to help me sleep. I haven't been able to work for several years and have been on disability. My case has been reviewed and they said I am NOW able to work. I got a Lawyer ( I couldn't deal with it anymore) to help me appeal the decision and we have a hearing in Nov. but I will not have gone to Mayo yet and a diagnosis would help. I am so stressed out and I feel so worthless. Needless to mention I also suffer from depression. I live in a small town and I worry what people think of me, they can't see what's wrong with me. I never have been a lazy person yet I feel like people think of me as "just being lazy". I want to scream. It helps to read this board and see others who are in a very similar situation. Thanks for letting me vent. I have to go, can't sit hear any more.
