My bout with my health started about 12 years ago when I was 34. It started as a severe achy pain in my left arm pit. The pain radiated down my arm. Dr. did ekg that was normal. Pain so severe had to take tylenol the 2 hrs. later had to take ibuprofen. Left side of face began to hurt, shortly after whole left side of body. Went to GP who did blood tests for MS, and infection. Both normal. Went to Internal Medicine dr. no help whatsoever. Saw a surgeon and was told there was "nothing vital" on left side so he was no help. Finally GP sent me to rheumatologist who said it was fibromyalgia. Did reading on fibromyalgia and it is not localized to left side of body so symptoms didn't fit to me. After the pain finally subsided 2 months later, I was left with very tender areas on left side of body. My child could no longer sit in my lap on left thigh without it killing me. It and my left hip and ribs on left hip are tender to touch. Also, upon laying on my left side, it feels like I have a small rock under my ribs. Areas so tender I had to buy a memory foam mattress just to rest. Have had recurrent urinary problems but didn't test positive for UTI. Have had recurrent stomach virus. Now recent symptoms have me more worried. Started with what thought was flu but no ever. Every bone in my body ached even skull. Especially facial bones. Sensitive to cold especially nose. Heart feeling like jumping or pumping hard. Throat feels like trying to get flu. Knees ache when stand from sitting. Finger bones burn sensation. Outer wrist ligament lumpy and painful when strained. Upper back at shoulder blades feels tight and achy. Shoulders hurt, inner ear ache and scratchy feeling. Chest bones and muscles hurt when strained. Tops of feet ache and are tender. Please help!!! Would like to be around for grandchildren one day.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
