Fatigue, activity intolerance, generalized pain... Please help!
I am a (previously) healthy 26 year old female. About 6 months ago I began having some tailbone pain and it has progressed despite NSAID therapy. They have ruled out any cysts, I have had a negative sacral and coccygeal xray, and a CT shows a bulge at L4-L5 which my Dr is deeming irrelevant at this time. I read about colon cancer and tailbone pain, and am nervous its something serious. I am always tired, never feel upbeat and full of energy (even if I get 10 hours of sleep per night), have frequent headaches, and have a lot of seemingly unrelated pains. Other than my tailbone pain, I have pain in my ribcage, pain in my upper abdomen at the bottom of my sternum, pain on my sides, and occasional "fullness" or "pressure" in my lower back. I do have a hx of depression and anxiety, and am medicated for that. I just want to feel "normal" again!! My Dr just drew some labs today to check my ANA, CRP, ESR, Rheumatoid Factor, etc... (all tests for inflammation/autoimmune disorders). I feel like I get short of breath and sweaty very easily, and have some generalized weakness, etc... Any suggestions? Please help!! No doctors seem to take me seriously at this point and are making me feel like this is all in my head!
