Is My Chronic Pain Fibro?
I have spent two years now in extreme pain. None stop. I've gone to Doctors in many areas in which they give me a different diagnosis. Each pretty much meaning I have chronic pain but they didn't know why. The last one which was a year ago this month I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Again, not an answer, but just a way of saying 'your in pain and there's nothing we can do'.
After that, I've tried to see pain clinics and everything else, which not one person will try and help. It's frustrating. Two years of not being able to live my life is already two years too much.
The story behind it is that I took tylenol with codeine for horrible menstrual cramps. It did nothing that night when I took it, so I stayed home the day after and went back to sleep when a few hours later, I was woken up by horrible chest pain. I could breathe it hurt so much. It came in spells, randomly. I would have a moment of relief when I think I was okay again when it comes back in another hard wave. I was rushed to the ER in which they took X-rays and everything and it was said I wasn't having a heart attack. They gave me something in case it was my digestive system to numb it, which did nothing. And then a shot of ibuprofen, which still did nothing only
to be released soon after. It was the start of the long cycle of people doing nothing to help me.
I've read through everything, but I still am not sure. I do not have low Vitamin D. I've been on supplements for years now and if anything, it's very much a normal level. It is not magnesium with no help either, completely no change. I've tried eating healthy, and still, nothing.
I have been tested in other things. My heart has been checked, my stomach and digestive system. I have even had a piece of my stomach taken to test for allergies. Even a neurologist.
Some of my symptoms is NO sleep. I've been on a number of things to help it, and yet it still does nothing. Pain on average of 9.5 out of 10, daily. It's not only a stabbing pain, but throbs. If touches, the pain radiates and gets worse for at least ten minutes. Pains in my legs that are a lot like restless leg syndrome. The average places that hurt is my neck, my head, my shoulders, down my back and horrible aching. Pretty much EVERYTHING in the Fibromyalgia pamphlets that they had out. I have been tested for nearly everything under the sun it seems, if not tripled checked. Please, if you have any insight, please let me know. I want to get better, but I'm horribly frustrated at this point that I have not once gotten any help.
