Hi, I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on some symptoms I've been dealing with for over two months.
I have Intersistial Cystitis and am waiting for test results for RA. Over the past two months I've been experience extreme fatigue, I have no energy to do anything. It takes me every last ounce just to take a shower in the morning. When I wake up after about 15 hours of sleep, I fell like someone has been sitting on my chest all night. It feels full of fluid but there is nothing there. I use my inhaler (exercise induced asthma) but it doesn't help. I suffer from pain in my right abs due to adhesion disease and the IC but lately it's been much worse. I keep having these little eposiodes that literally take my breath away they hurt so much. I get headaches all the time and I've noticed that I get really annoyed easily. I also have a lot of trouble remembering things. My brain feels very cloudy. I'll get up to get something but forget what it was so I get a drink of water so I don't feel stupid. I'm afraid to go to my doctor because I feel like I'm a pest to them. (took 5 years and many, many tests to determine I have IC, they didn't believe me and treated me like I was a drug seeker) I take morphine and Elmeron for my IC symptoms. I'm also very dry all the time. My mouth and my eyes feel like a desert. Any ideas? Thanks for any help at all. It's greatly appreciated!:eek:
