hello from foggyhead

Postby foggyhead01 » Sat May 15, 2010 11:31 pm

Hello
I am Ellie, I am 23 and Im currently in the process of getting a diagnosis. Basically I was born double jointed and i never really thought much of it until now when i realise that something is not right. For example when i was 15 i would literally put people off their lunch or school work by the way i would twist my elbows/arms and i never had any pain whilst doing so.

I am very fatiqued at first i thought it was normal everyday fatique that normal people get after a hard days work. But gradually i have come to terms that something is not right and after countless blood tests coming back normal I am starting to realise that still something is not right. I have recently had a lot stomach troubles, throat infections and colds and sore throats. But then it went and i thought yay it's gone at last. But then in March my stomach started playing up, sore throat and fatique came back. and because i am a bit of insominac (never really had a problem just always been an owl person) i am starting to get pains in my arms, elbows area, shoulders, back, ribs and even my legs and my sleeping pattern isn't good either as the pain is still there even when i sleep. So on average i get about five hours of sleep a night and wake up feeling more tired then i went to bed. i find that the pains in my muscles feeel more tender then normal and they ache like i have concrete blocks and are especially sensitive when it's freezing or boiling hot.

Currently i am working in two admin jobs (20 hours in total) and i do some commuting and light areobic exercise and my muscle pain and joint pain is still there especially in my arms and shoulders. I am even finding that from around 4pm I get quite sensitive to light and loud music. (my brother's guitar playing drives me nuts) Also i recently lost a stone and half of weight (within a month or so) and i am finding food harder to digest. (a roast dinner, a pasta or a curry with rice would leave me in so much pain i would be still feeling it the next day, so i am having to avoid such meals. Also my memory and concentration hasn't been that good at first i thought it was due to my dyspraxia and thought nothing of it, but then now i found that some days i couldn't work out my timesheet that i use at work. (i have been using them for three years and i had no problems with them before)

so what do you reckon?
Ellie.

P.S the problems with sleeping at night never used affect me in morning but since Feb this have gone wrong.

:welcome: to the forum Ellie.

Its hard to say if you have fibro, you do have some symptoms.
Have you ever been referred to a Rheumy or Neuro team? If not ask your GP to refer you as they will DX fibro.

It sounds like you might have IBS which does seem to be a problem as lots of sufferers have IBS, your GP should be able to DX you.
You will get to know what food works for you again your GP should be able to give you info.

I hope you get some answers soon. Have a look around the forum and print some info out to see what applies to you then go back to your GP and ask to see a specialist.

Good luck

Hi
Just say to your GP that you were talking to a friend and they said it sounds like you have Fibro, say you had never heard of it so researched it on the net and a lot of your symptoms fitted in with it.

Any questions you have just ask as someone will always answer you.
Good luck.

Sadly the pain has got a lot worse the last few weeks and basically the horrible pain in my stomach and ribs, started off the rest of the symptoms for example i found this morning i couldn't reach my own hair and i ended up going out with crappy hair as my arms were so weak and then when finally got to work two i couldn't concentrate well on the simplest of tasks and i felt like i was stretching too much and my entire shoulders,knees, back and stomach felt really bad.

im with you on the hair thing...im ashamed to say it, but i havnt been able to wash my hair for 2.5 weeks...and last time it was washed i had to go to the hairdressers because i couldnt do it myself...most days i dont get to brush my hair...im 24 (close to your age), and feel ashamed that i cant do the simplest of tasks...at our age we should be able to sit there for hours messing with GHD's and curlers etc... :?

i hope you get some answers off your doctor...i had to go down the route of saying someone suggest to me that i may have FM, as i didnt want them to think i was looking up symptoms online and making my life fit with the symptoms (if you know what i mean)...it worked!!
