(NOTICE: this is a very long post) Hi, im 15 and have had serious medical problems for 2 years now. recently I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia
but after going back and looking at the top 3 diseases/illnesses that I thought I could have had (before being diagnosed with Fibro) I have concluded that I dont have Fibro
ill explain in a moment, but first:
- Raised Rashes that burn, itch ect but only last a matter of seconds or minutes. They happen fairly often
- Headache, mild or severe, Seizures and pressure in my eyes
- Facial Flushing
- Double or blurry vision
- Flashing lights when I stand up (id say it happens 50% of the time whenever i stand up)
- Diarrhea and Constipation
- Upset stomach (nausea or pain) at all times
- Bone pain, joint pain or swelling
- Stiffness of joints
- Muscle pain, extremely bad in the right leg and also bad in left leg, arms and almost my whole body
- Shortness of breath, I can't ever get a full breath
- Chest pain, electrical shock pains starting from my arm pits and go to the center of my chest. they happen often and i feel winded when it happens
- Heart palpitations or extra beats, skips beats, and is CONSTANTLY beating extremely fast. Doctors cannot explain it.
- unexplained shaking, Burning and stabbing sensations in the body
- EXTREME fatigue. so bad that i lay in bed 24 hours a day and can hardly go to school
- Strange purple marks on my knees
- White blochs on my hands, it looks like when the blood rushes to my hands it doesnt reach many areas and i get all these white dots all over my hands
- Confusion, difficulty in thinking, and unexplained fevers
- weird attacks where my heart rate goes way up, i get a headache, my stomach hurts a lot more than usual and i get a lot of those electrical shock pains in my chest
so as you can see.. many symptoms. I have had 3 ultrasounds on my heart, 4 full body scans, countless blood tests for EVERYTHING. ALL tests have been negative.
some family history: Grand parents had either cancer, heart disease, or blood disorders where thier blood wouldnt clot
I have seen many doctors, I live in Canada and have even had to go to Sick Kids Hospital down in Toronto.
Im convinced that I dont have Fibromyalgia.... and im at the end of my rope. I cant stand living like this, doing horrible in school and in so much pain and fatigued that i cant even walk down the stairs
Somebody PLEASE help, anything at all. Any opinions.... or advice would be greatly appreciated.
