Im still fairly new here, and i hav been trying to post and give as much advice and support i can, but unfortunately i often do not hav much else to add to what others have posted, and not that much insight... but anyway i wanted to thank you all for all the info i have learned here..even tho i dont post often, i read on the forum everyday, so i am here! lol but for all of those that dont kno, i have endometriosis and adhesions which cause my pain, and quite a bit of it... but i also have immune issues and endocrine issues and some other things...
But, i wanted to ask if this sounded familiar to anyone or if anyone knows these symptoms or any of them.. i do hav an appt with a primary but its not till october (which is a whole different story...) but wanted to research and stuff before! so here it goes:
past 3 months (ish) i feel lik a fricken truck has hit me when i wake up every morning, extremely achy, but it does get better thru the day, but do always hav aching pains all thru out my body, not the whole body all the time but always some part of it... Im very forgetful, lik i could not tell u what i ate for dinner rite now, and its just really bad for short term memory (btw im only 19 years old, so i dont thing memory issues are normal...) my joints, esp. my knees and hips but all the way from ankles to toes are very painful esp when they r in use, and also when it rains? but its to the point that if i sit with my knees bent more than 90 degrees for even 2 minutes i cannot walk for an hour and straightening them is extremely painful... i have also been extremely fatigued, and it seems lik no matter how much sleep i get im still tired! its quite frustrating; ive always had sleep problems but i can get 3 hrs one nite feel horrible, but also sleep from 9 pm to 5pm the next day and go back to bed at 9 pm the same day and sleep for 10 hours... i hav no idea what controls that, no caffine, good "sleep hygine" and all that...
Now the two symptoms that take the cake are: i have been having odd muscle twitches... some everyday, not always all day, sometimes for 2 days straight,but mainly in my thumb, sometimes into forefinger (both on left hand and im right handed...) goes into my back, sholder, eyelid (left too), and sometimes in the back of thigh and buttox( both on right side)...
AND, extreme sensitivity in some parts of my body, again it moves around, sometimes in my arm, somtimes in my thigh, those are mainly the areas that have this, but any touch is lik extreme pain... lik a blanket touching it just ever so barely is lik scraping skin off.. or lik a severe burn just happened in that area and ur punching it! very odddd
Ok, im so sorry i went on for so long, wasnt intended to, but im just really confused and weirded out, and wanted to be as detailed as possible to give u guys a good picture... i hav done some poking around on the net, and im very worried about
Fibromyalgia... i hav been on lyrica and topamax in the past (for a diff reason) and one paralyzed me and one made me so zoned out and very depressed, so if i do hav fibro, what would/could be done about
aarrrggghhh so frustrating, again thank u guys so very much for reading and any and all opioins/comments/suggestiong/ conclusions... posts alltogether are appreciated!
Thank u guys so much for so much!
