Hi all I am Willow and I willl briefly tell you why I am here.

I consider that over the last 3 months I have just been unlucky !!
I had what was thought to be a heart attack in sept 2011, but it was a bout of Pericarditis, but due to being given a number of medications, Statins, Beta Blockers, Anti Inflamitries, Anti Biotics and much more that I didnt really need. I now have Stinging/Burning sensations all over my legs, arms, stomach, hips, buttocks.

I have no energy.
I get cold/numb feet, hands, hip.
I also get dreadful pressure headaches.
I never feel like ive been to bed.
I am forgetful and I keep moaning about trivial things.

I guess the question is am i suffering with some form of Nerve trouble ??, as 7 trips to A & E and all of my blood tests/ ECG's have come back good, yet I feel like my Batteries have run out and my Doctors havent got a clue. I have been prescribed with Amitryptilene, but I am frightend to take em as Ive had such a bad track record with Meds recently.

I realize that nobody can actually say "Yes this is your Problem" but it would be great to know if I am in the right place to get a bit of information and advice, as I have been struggling around on a stick for 2 months and I would like to know why .


Kind Regards.
Willow.

Hi Willow and :welcome: to the forum sorry to hear you are/have been suffering from so many symptoms but you will understand we are not health professionals and therefore are unable to say what you are suffering from, print out some of the information from here and from the NHS website and take it along to your doctor explaining why you think you may have FM (which incidentley is concerned with the muscles more than the nerves) and ask for a referral to a rhuematologist.

some doctors are more than happy to diagnose without referral and it may be so in your case, diagnosis often takes a long time and a lot of tests but while you are waiting have a look round the site and maybe you can find some of the answers you want, if not just ask and we'll try to help

Thank You for a very quick reply, I have an appointment being arranged for the Reumatology dept and in the mean time I have just been looking for ways to help myself as I spend the whole of my working life fixing stuff .
Kind Regards.

hi willow
welcome to the forum
hope all goes well with the rheumatologist and you get some answers
its horrid when you don't know why your body hurts so much and very frustrating
as nobody seems to be listening to you either :yikes: :yikes:

just keep your self as busy as possible and take one day at a time
that's what i try to do now instead of worrying about tomorrow or next week :roll:

hope the cold is not hurting you as much as its hurting me at the min :yikes: :lol:

:welcome: to the forum willow.

I would keep going back to your gp to push for answers. Fibro does not show up in any tests so it can take a long time before you get a dx of it, the docs have to rule out other things first.

Hope you get some answers soon. :hugs:
