I am only 38 but since many years I have painful triggerpoints in my shoulders and both sides of my bottocks. I also suffer of regular headaches, temple pains and now lately it feels like my whole left side mainly skull and neck are not right - it feels weird and is really freaking me out. I have a GP that don't care and given me muscle relaxers, and prednisolon for a while. Nothing seems to work though. I also have exess stomach and belly fat after 2nd pregnancy (now 18 months post pregnancy) the fat just won't go away, however, I weigh overall 76 kg and my height is 1.64m - my legs, face, arms, even my **** and hips are skinny it is just on waisteline and belly. During pregnancy i developped gestational diabetes and at one point I took 3 times a day insuline injections before my meals. I sport now once a week i.e. 1 hour gym circuit training and cycle 4 days a week for 45 minutes all together in a day. I don't feel I live and eat unhealthly but sometimes I can indulge myself in a Chocolate bar, Chinese or a portion of chips - but most of times I cook, greens with some meat of which I dish out always a small portion for myself, a small cut of meat, 1 potato and lots of greens (this because I am scared to become diabetic). I drink no pops or soda's mostly water and unsugared tea/coffee, sometimes juice, I eat mostly brown bread okay with a slice of cheese.

I look at other people who have similar lifestyles as mine but just do not have the same belly I have. Some people even think I am still pregnant or that I eat too much!! I have the feeling that my body doesn't work well anymore, the chronic muscle pains and pain in my neck and skull are really driving me mad, the storage of belly fat makes my figure look like I am pregnant since I am skinny for the rest, and I am regularly feeling tired and unable to focus on doing simple tasks, what is going on with me. I am a Management Assistant and truly worried because it is now affecting my performance at work, also low sex drive so relation also going to ****.:confused:
Please help me what can I do.
