@pjshoppes did your ENT & rheumatologist offer any explanations or alternatives that might be causing you to feel like you are stuck in a Minieres attack?

Hello I'm new to this site, I'm looking for answers and people I can talk to that has the same problems I do. It's scary alone. I can't talk to my husband because he is permanently in a wheelchair. I have fibromaylia , Addison and just this month after a biopsy on my arm, it has been itching and looking like I had a bad sun burn, they diagnosed with connective tissue disase. I feel like I'm go crazy I itch ALL over my body. I have cream and a pill that I take it helps but it doesn't last long. I'm so fatigue, I do things, for example, I go to town to do groceries and by the time I get back I just collapse and the next day I'm in the bed. It's so hard for me also to push my self everyday cause I have to take care my husband. I do have a nurse 2 hours a day, thank God. But the rest of the day is on me, it's so hard. I'm scare of what this disease is about and symptoms and etc.. can someone help me understand the disease, please, I'm one of those people the more I know the better I can deal with it. I also know my back and the bones in my body hurt every time I get up moving, about 10 mins. the pain is unbearable. I'm in the middle of taking a mailigance panel have 1 more left. Once everything is done I meet back with the dermatologist to see where we go from there. This is my story sorry it was so long.
