Hi, I am a homeschooling mother of 4 children, age 38 (Yikes,
I have been having issues for several months....yes, been to several doctors. First, I was found to have microscopic blood in my urine....it's decreasing so the doctors aren't worried about it.
Secondly, after all the blood test it showed I had a very low vit D. Doctor put me on 50,000 units a week. The sed rate and esr all was normal.
Thirdly, doctor said I was depressed and put me on lexapro.....I refused to take it. I am not depressed, I laugh, cut jokes and just an all around goofy person. I like to have fun in life and enjoy my family. I do get frustrated because my body isn't the same as it use to be.
August of last year my normal periods began to become intense, painfully.
I started to loose weight, got that undercontrol now. I got sick in Dec. with diarrah, I was knocked on my butt tired all the time, sleeping alot and that is when the muscle pain started. The pain isn't chronic just in different locations.
Right now I do get tried at times but then in a few hours I am back to normal. Not everyday though I have some really good days. I no longer nap in the day but am tired at night.
I do have muscle cramps, tingling/pins in fingers and leg, just odd aches. Anywhere below my neck is fair game. The twinges of pain may last a few seconds and it's gone. The cramps last a bit longer.
Also a times my my jeans may give me a weird sensation in one location on my skin. Just for a few seconds it's gone.
I do have hot flashes now,
on top of everything.
I can tell you the pain isn't chronic just annoying. I can't pinpoint the pain because its not one location. The pain doesn't wake me up at night so I know it isn't serious.
I do have stomach pain off and on to, different locations.
I also noticed stress, weather and my periods is when there is more aches.
I do have daily issues with aches, yesterday was not a good day. My legs ached like having the flu, my hands off and on. I did get my period today so I can link that together.
I was wondering with Fibro, how does it began?
Can it came up later in life?
What is is like to have it.......
I can live with this no biggie.......my thoughts if it gets worse I'll tell the doctor but really not wanting to because I am tired of seeking medical advice and paying bills. Plus when I saw my doctor this week I busted up laughing after telling him the same thing again,,, I said, ok I realize this sounds like depression but that isn't the case here.
My dh, I love him tells me I'm getting older this is normal.....not buying it.
I am sorry this is so long but I'm frustrated, I don't think this is normal.
