I am a 21 yr old female who has been experiencing chronic joint pain for the past six months. Certain diseases have been ruled out by my PCP, including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and Lyme's Disease. My immune system has been incredibly susceptible to everything lately - I have had both the viral stomach flu and bronchitis in just three weeks. I don't sleep well, I'm depressed, and I'm constantly achy. I have no idea what's going on w/ me... My PCP referred me to a local rheumatologist, who I am seeing in about five days. I'm worried that he won't be able to help either or, as some of you have posted, that he will tell me that it's psychological especially since I am so young. Any suggestions, support, or comments? Thanks so much.
