I am a 53 year old woman with chronic fatigue/fibromyalgia. I have experienced pretty severe flares since my 20s that have left me bedridden at times many days. Have been tested ad nauseum for autoimmune/connective tissue disease, but i was so frustrated with results and meds, I have not been to a dr in a long time. Never tested for MS. I think it is time. I really loathe going, but my symptoms have gotten progressively worse: stabbing nerve pain, joint pain, muscle weakness, extreme fatigue, bladder urgency and cannot hold my bladder, very annoyimg itchiness. My concern is i am going to go through all the tests and not have a dx. I am getting too old to waste time and I do not have energy to leave the house much. I live in a semirural area and it is not easy to get seen and find reputable doctors. Any advice on getting a diagnosis and treatment quickly? I seriously do not want to try, but doing this for my family too. Thanks for any help!
