I had leg and hip pain beginning in 1995. It spread to different joints over the years. Everything was normal that they ran, x-rays and all. I began to be treated as if it were all in my head. I have changed doctors several times because of this. I went to a doctor who ran a comprehensive blood tests of several different systems. My iron was high and my hematocrit was high along with my hemoglobin and A/G ratio. My iron saturation is at 60%. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia prior to this testing, but it did not seem right. From this sight I read about hemochromatosis. I have been trying to figure out if this is what I have. I read that it is fairly common. Why don't you get your iron tested just to check? It might give you some answers.
