My skin hurts to wear clothes, my "fat" on my
body hurts to be pressed, it is overly sensitive to even pull my sleeves up and to pull my pants down to go to the bathroom. I have shooting pains all over my body. Everywhere. My ribcage hurts on n off but when it hurts...its literally debilitating. I ache as if I have the flu, however I do not. My shoulders hurt too. I honestly don't remember a day when I did not hurt. Its depressing and makes me want to cry. I'm exhausted...can't even work and have all I can to do daily tasks. I have IBS really bad so that sadly adds to my daily discomfort. I have pains in my ears but no ear infection. My ears have become unbelievably oversensitive to sounds...horribly...for like a year or a ye n a half. Is there anyone who has this stuff? Its ruining my life. :(........

  • I think you have a few issues 1) Gut wise you need make sure you have IBS - if not already I would recommend a endoscopy of both ends - especially colon - you may have an adenoma, or celliacs or ulcers making you feel unwell. So I would get this sorted to see if there is any pathology causing your IBS symptoms - if there is a reason for this you could be treated and you could be 100% better. 2) you have a lot of pain - I would see a neurologist to work you up. I would get some MRI imaging done of your brain, neck and spine. I would also get a bone scan done to see if this is clear. 3) The rib pain - I would get a simple chest x-ray to show this is clear. 4) Some blood tests - do a full blood count, iron studies, liver function, electrolytes, renal function, PTH, Vit D, Corrected Calcium, B12, folate, ACE, CEA, Chromogranin A, HCG, Cortisol, Testosterone, LH, FSH, also your cholesterol and lipid profile, CRP, ESR. It is not good to be negative - make sure your health comes first - follow-up with your tests and see if you can find things wrong correct them and feel better. Look at this in a positive fashion and you may regain a lot of your health again.
