Sorry if this seems to go on forever!!
I am a 19 year old female and attend college and work part time but it is nothing stressful. September 2008 I had flu like symptoms and aches and pains and a dry throat/cough. I went to the doctor and was told just to rest and drink plenty of water I was also checked for glandular fever which came back negative. I then went back a month later as my symptoms had got worse and I was sleeping constantly, felt weak, had aches and pains and my doctor done various blood tests and they showed I was anaemic. I was put on iron supplements (ferrous sulphate) for 3 months and felt slightly better while I was on them. After the 3 months were up I was called back to the doctors and a blood test showed my iron levels were normal. As of January 2009 I have felt worse than ever. I have aches and pains so bad I have been crying with pain, my bones feel sore, I get tingling and numbness in my hands and feet , I feel extremely weak with no energy and have a strong pain in my arms and legs. I feel nausea all the time and have no appetite. I get headaches and feel dizzy a lot. At night I cannot get to sleep with the pain, When I wake up in the mornings I feel as if my legs r so heavy and can hardly get out of bed. I feel more tired as I have had little sleep with the pain. I have been to the doctor six times since January now and she cannot find anything wrong. I have had blood test after blood test and have been checked for iron, thyroid, calcium, glucose, vitamin a,b,c,d. I feel angry she cannot find anything wrong and know that something is up as I feel so bad!! I am also worried I have something seriously wrong with me! The pain is starting to ruin my life at the moment and I have had to miss college for weeks and have been phoning in sick to work constantly as i have not had the energy to get ready. Recently I have had unusual bowel movements and sometimes diarrhoea and wind. I have been taking vitamin supplements and painkillers/paracetamol but it is not helping the pain. I have a healthy diet and drink 2 litres of water a day. I read about fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome which can cause IBS and I have the symptoms of these. I am going back to the doctors and have been told to see another doctor as my doctor cannot find anything wrong. Can someone please help or have u got any ideas??? :confused: I am in pain I cannot even think of the last time I felt good!
