Hi susan i took a look at the web sites and yes i can tick most of the boxes cfs yes is one of the main ones that sound like me.I rung my doctors today and spoke to one of the nurses she is lovely and most of the time i like to talk to her rather then the doctors she is so understanding,i ended up in tears because of what i am going through,i feel so silly keep going to the doctors i feel like they think i am mad but i am not well, the pains are real .I dont suffer from depression i may get down but not depressed im not the sort of person that gives up i fight these pains every day and even when i am in pain i dont let others see i get on with it,i am happy im married have three children my two eldest have left home my youngest is 13 years old my daughter lives next door to me with her husband and my two grand children,my husband is a good man works hard is kind and caring and he loves me ,so i have no problems in my life as such.I worry about my health i wont lie but its knowing some thing is wrong but you dont know what, you know your own body ,im glad its not heart related after all the tests i have had surley they cant be wrong.Iam off back to the doctors in the morning they have got to get to the bottom of it ,thank you for your time x

Hi Caroline!

Thanks so much for your post (and we're not grammar or spelling police here so please don't worry!) I read your other (older) post about your pain and I see that you are still at a loss about what is wrong, as are your doctors?

I wonder if you should take a different track here. You may be dealing with Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. You can click on those pages for more info (just click on their names).

Another condition that I'd like you to read up on is something called Chronic Pain Syndrome. The website, Chronic Pain Syndrome.net is devoted to this sometimes mysterious condition. The website describes this condition as "a very complex and challenging condition to many healthcare providers as it can have many different reasons for its existence in an individual suffering from chronic pain syndrome.
Pain, itself, is the most common reason for individuals to see their doctor or medical professional while about 35% of individuals in the nation suffer from some type of chronic pain.
Over forty-eight million in this country alone are not able to function normally as a result of some type of debilitating form of chronic pain.
Ultimately, chronic pain syndrome is pain which lasts longer than 6 months, sometimes only a few months according to some doctors.
Chronic pain syndrome can consist of many different symptoms and can be hard for medical professionals to figure out at first due to the many different systems in the human body which could be causing the chronic pain syndrome at the same time.
The root of chronic pain syndrome could be physical as well as neurological in many cases.
After years of research, medical professionals have found that chronic pain syndrome is more commonly developed in individuals suffering from psychological syndromes such as depression, hypochondriasis, somatization disorder and more.
Individuals suffering from chronic pain syndrome usually experience more negative effects due to lack of sleep quality and depression moreso over the intensity of pain, anxiety or duration thereof.
Statistically speaking, it is more likely for women to report heightened levels of chronic pain syndrome than that of men.
According to past medical research, chronic pain syndrome and the associated symptoms are usually a direct result of a past injury or experience which cause the amplified pain and/or sense of loss, fright or negative experience within oneself which can cause the lasting elements in chronic pain syndrome such as that of chronic burning pain or RSD which is in all actuality a neurological disorder associated with chronic pain, or CPS.
It is also important to recognize that stress is oftentimes one of the leading amplifiers of chronic pain syndrome and this stress alone often will cause chronic pain syndrome to flare up in a worsened manner."

You can also read up in Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome from the Mayo Clinic :

Do you think there is a possibility that you may be dealing with something like this? Please check out the websites and let me know what you think...I look forward to hearing back from you,
