Most of what I read sounds like Vasculitis or GCA, but let your doctor do his/her work to figure everything out. What I highly suggest though, is to keep a daily journal and record every pain/discomfort to include exact time of onset. Also record everything you eat/drink (candy/snacks too) the weather/temperature that day (storm moving in; itís cloudy temp of 94F humidity shows as 92%), what meds, vitamins, herbs you took that day and what time. Explain pain/discomfort in detail. If you have blood pressure monitor at home, also list BP same time every day 3x day, and your weight same time every day when you get up. Take this journal (can do online too if you give your doctor access to it) with you every time you see a doctor so they can get the best information from you possible to take appropriate action in diagnosing/treating your problems. You might also include in this any pets you surround yourself with, as sometimes you can develop severe allergies towards your pets. After each visit also record that day what tests were done and what doctor said to you; they have so many patients to deal with and it can happen that they forgot to write something in their notes that they did or said to you. Iím quite sure your doctor will appreciate having all this information available to them; if nothing else, it will help yourself to lead as healthy of a life as possible by seeing in written form the good things you do for yourself and the things you probably should eliminate and this should have a more positive outcome with any mental difficulties possibly reducing some of your depression.

I wish you well and hope your family and doctors get you on the right track to a more healthy life with less pain/discomfort. Never feel that youíre a burden because Life is better with you in it than if you werenít even if it isnít always apparent to you! If you ever feel so depressed again that suicidal thoughts surface, then pleas call this suicide prevention line (put that number in your phone contact list) +18002738255
