Yesturday I had a brain MRI and, as my neurologist predicted, it came back normal. Totally fricken normal. Hence, she is convinced that I have some kind of "Chronic Pain Syndrome" or "Somatic Disorder". These sort of sound like "get out of my face" diagnosis's to me.
I have been tested for: gluton intolerance, Lupus, the stimulation tests for MS, had a sigmiodoscopy (sp) / endoscopy (found minor gastritis H. Pylori negative, doc said stress), a million CBCs, CMPs, urine tests, EKGs, and now this MRI--which actually I kind of enjoyed (I listen to a lot of weird music that kind of sounds like the machine). If i didn't have good health insurance and a good job in real-estate, I'd be F'ed right now.
However, I remain unconvinced that nothing is wrong with me. I feel like i have a million symptoms all the time and am constantly achey. WTF!
So, has anyone heard of Chronic Pain Syndrome or Somatic Disorder and by into it? If so, how did you fix it?? Can i make this go away with out medication? Does anyone do accupuncture?
Thanx, you guys rule!
