Hello,

My name is Hannah, I am 24 years old and I'm from the northwest of england. I have only recently (in the last month) been diagnosed and im still a little overwhelmed.

I have been having various issues for about the last 5 years, and I've been kicked from pillar to post. Test results coming back negative so I get sent back to the gp and they send me back to the hospital. They have even performed surgery on me three or four times to no avail. Finally (thank god) they give me a diagnosis and I wasn't really sure what to think when they said its not going to go away.

I've been having more and more bad patches to the point where I'm having to use all my energy to work and then I get home and I am pretty much comatose on the sofa, useless. My fiancé has had to pick up so much of the slack which makes me feel guilty.

They have started me on medication but I was just wondering if anyone had any advice....... I just don't know how to cope at the moment.

I apologise if this post just seems to be me moaning lol and hopefully I have put this in the right place.

Any advice would be really appreciated.

Hannah xxx

The whole "it's all in your head" really began to do my nut in lol. To the point I started to hate going to the drs as I felt they were just looking at me as if to say what the f**k are u doing here lol. For me it started with abdominal pain, which I have had three ops on. Then migraines, and exhaustion and it's just gotten worse from there.

The latest symptoms were numbness, tingling and pain in my hands which they performed a Carpal tunnel release on my right hand and that did nothing. My brain appears to be getting more and more easily confused. Saying one thing and meaning something completely different and and getting confused when doing physical activities. And the general being in agony constantly..... The dr asked me again to describe the pain, she wanted to know if it was in one place in particular lol when I said no its everywhere like a constant ache but more painfull she just nodded her head grrrrrr lol I'm having a hard time with my hands, elbows and shoulders at the moment and just don't know how to help lessen the pain....

Thanks for the replies, i was looking around on here last night and in some ways it's good to know that there is a support network out there. Although I do wish that non of us on here needed to deal with this.

Xxx
