Hello and thank you for reading this!
I am 26 years old. this all started when i was about 16 my back and knees started hurting..when i was 18 i was diagnosied with hypothryoidism i took synthroid until i was 26. I had a baby at 21 pregnancy went great, i did have gestational diabeties i had daily inslin shots. My daughter was on the BIG side. two years after i had her i was diagnosed as a diabetic. During those years iv had chronic back and joint pain. Iv now had surgery on both knees. I in the last year have lost 85 pounds, sense loosing that i am no longer a diabetic and i no longer have thryoid disease. I do have severe pain. I have been trying to get doctors too do somthing for years. I have been diagnosed with chronic pain, and my doctor says now thats its fibro. I have an apt on monday with a rhem. doctor.
SEVERE back pain lower and upper, all the time im talking morning to night, it does not matter what way i sit or stand or lay it hurts. In the morning i am so stiff it hurts to even get out of bed and streach and walk. sitting in a chair kills me, i wish i could describe how bad the pain is. once when i went to the hospital they gave me morphine that made me feel no pain for 1 hour that was the best hour let me tell you!
neck pain and stiffness
Joint pain, all my joints feel like they need to crack but i cant crack them and it hurts so bad it keep me up at night.
My hands are now hurting expecially my right hand. I cannot even peel patoes anymore it makes my hands hurt so bad. I have a 4 year old that i cannot carry it hurts me beyond belief when i have to pick her up.
Some times when im standing my legs will feel funny like they are going to give out on me. its a strange sensation and its hard to describe.
I am COLD all the time yes my heat is on at its set at 75 and i still have to wear 2 pairs of sweat pants and normally a long sleeve and a short sleeve and a hoodie. After all that i am still freezing. I cannot handle the cold anymore, when i go outside and its cold its like every mussle in my body constricts which causes a lot of pain.
I have had xrays of my back 4 years ago and it only showed slight deteration and bone spures.
I am so tired of being in pain all the time i am too the point i cannot handle it anymore. The doctors keep giving me muscle relaxers and vicodin which dont even touch the pain. Now he tell me its fibro, i dont think so but i dont know what else it is. if anyone can help me it would be greatly approciated. I am at wits end with the pain its just too much these days!
