    This happens ever so often to me, and I wanted to know if I am alone in this? I have been to the doctors at least 5 times, every time they do a blood test that comes back fine. Nothing seems to get rid of this feeling.

    For like 24-72 hours I get the worst pain ever in all my joints and bones. It starts out as like a growing pain sensation in my legs, but within 12 hours it's all over my body, including my ribs and skull - makes it painful to breathe. I have the shakes, I get migraines, slight sore throat, I feel weak and tired, I am also really clammy, and a weird mix of hot and cold. I also go extremely pale.

    It's literally like having the flu for 24-48 hours.

    I have to spend the entire time in bed, and I can't pin it down to anything. I've tried eating clean, cutting out dairy products, cutting our starchy foods, keeping myself warm, exercising, I do not understand what it is that makes me feel like this at least once a month if not more.

    This is a shot in the dark but ask the doctor to check your endorphin & thyroid levels.

    It could be something like Fibromyalgia. Has he tested for this?

    I thought this or possibly CFS, sadly its not something that can be tested for as such...

    Could be ME or fibromyalgia? Don't mean to scare you but bone pain can be a sign of leukaemia, so get checked out!

    I did think this as my dad has just been diagnosed, especially with the clamminess... but I would have thought that a high white cell count would have come up on blood tests.

    Yeah, it would have shown on the blood tests. Be persistent or try another doctor to get a second opinion. How long has this been going on? It's important to keep trying because as I wasn't that persistent it took around 5 years before I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. Hope things work out!
