I am young, 21 infact. I have been having severe pains all my life but my parents didn't exactly believe in doctors. I finally started going when I was about 16, hard to find a doctor who cares. Recently in the last year or so the pain has become unbearble. SO i got a new doctor. Its affecting my everyday activities, I cant touch my toes without being in pain, my hips and legs and elbows feel cramped and bruised but there is nothing there.
So there it is, after blood work and xrays and multiple exams, the doc says I have fibromyalgia.
And now its up to me what step I want to take next-says the doc.
Well I can't say im thrilled. Its frustrating to be 21 and I feel like im 85.
So i guess Im just looking for people to talk to, familiar stories maybe.
I am not familiar with whats going on, but the pieces come together.
I go through periods of time where my emotions are set in one direction and nothing I do changes it until, bam its a different feeling that Im focused on.All of last week I was feeling overwhelmed . like seriously wanted to just walk out of my job and go home, everyday for 5 days straight. And my job is not very stressful and I don't dislike it. No matter what I did all week I was overwhelmed by simple tasks, I couldn't look at the dishes..I would just turn and walk away. I couldn't make dinner..I would rather not eat than cook.
My boyfriend is wonderful, we live together and he does everything possibke to try and make things easier for me, so I am grateful for that but it makes me feel useless at the same time.
After feeling overwhelmed all week we finally got to the weekend and all I could feel was some sort of anxious type of anger. I was simply mad, at nothing particular, just mad. I didn't want to stand, sit, play games, walk the dog, I wanted to fight everything in my path.
An now the past 3 days, I have felt okay, just severe boredom.
Does anyone else seem to focus on one feeling for days at a time?
