Hello again. lol
I posted a topic earlier today, and after rereading, realized it was long and made no sense. So I'm starting over. lol
My name is Beth, I'm 23 years old, and I have not been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. After having problems with my lungs, I was tested for so many different things. I had blood work done (tested for anemia, diabetes, thyroid and hormones tested - all normal). I had a chest Xray, CT scan and EKG, all normal. I had an asthma test performed, which showed I had a restriction on my lungs, but no idea what was causing it. After three months of continual lung problems, it went away on it's own.
Now, after almost two months of no issues, it's back, among other things. In the last year, I've suffered from brain fog (forgetting where I am, where I'm going, certain words, my thoughts just get "stuck"), vertigo, light sensitivity, also problems with my eyes jerking to the left or right against my will, ringing in my ears, lack of taste and hearing, trouble sleeping (sleeping 7-8 hours, then taking one or two 2-3 hour naps every day), nightmares, nightsweats, seven different points of (painful) swelling in my neck, difficulty swallowing, heartburn, heart palps, rib pain, tender skin (almost like a sore muscle), difficulting breathing, carpal tunnel-like symptoms, severe back pain (upper and lower), intolerant to cold (fingers get red and tingly), body parts fall asleep (hands, feet, legs, even nose and inside the ear), muscle weakness, hands shake if I haven't eaten for a while, excessive gas, alternating diarrhea/constipation, extreme vaginal dryness and frequent infections, joint pain, restless legs, and itchy rashes on feet. Of course, there's more that I can't remember at the moment.
I've been poked and proded and tested for so many things, but no one seems to know what's wrong. My GP says anxiety, which really upset me because I know I'm not making up all my problems. I can't talk to my family anymore. I just don't know where to turn and I don't know where to go next.
Does this sound like fibro to anyone here?
Blessings and love,
