Hello, I'm 20 years old and I've been sick for more than a year now. It started when I had vertigo at school and my legs felt like cement. I've been running a low-grade temp everyday that runs from 99-99.9F. My hair has become very thin, and I have no appetite. I have a hard time taking a shower because my legs and hands shake. One doctor told me I had panic disorder, and psychiatrists have told me no. I have had over 20 blood tests, colonoscopies, endoscopies, mris, catscans, upper gi's and no one can find out whats wrong. I've had 3 UTI's in the past year. My joints are so stiff in the morning I have a hard time getting out of bed, i use to be an avid tanner, in tanning beds until it would make me too dizzy and I developed blisters on my chest and feet. I need help, my rheumatologist is baffled and he suggests I go to NYC columbia presbyterian. I need advice on which doctor is the best. I dont trust doctors anymore, no one can give me an answer all they did was load me up on antidepressants and xanax, the tremors in my hands are still there. I was also wondering if anyone went through the same thing as me, my blood count is borderline and my ana is negative.
