I am sorry you didn't get any answers from the bloodwork - sometimes it sucks to be normal! I am in a similar boat. I just got the call from the nurse that, "hooray, everything looks normal" last night. While not having lupus, RA, etc is good, not knowing is terribly frustrating. All I have is a slightly elevated sedimentation rate, which is another indicator of inflammation. I guess I am an inflammatory person.... My Mom has similar issues and has benefited from consults with Rheumatologists over the years. She swears they are smarter than most doctors and well versed in weird issues. She has never gotten a diagnosis, but they have occasionally at least reassured her that she isn't nuts. Sometimes that helps.
