I am an 18 year old male, 181.3cm, 69kg.
I guess I should start with what I know. In the last 4 months or so I've managed to pull off 3 sporting injuries; a right groin strain (which never 'fully' recovered before the next injury), a psoas muscle tear (which was getting better slowly), a psoas muscle re-tear (which has stopped getting better and responding to physio after week 2).
With the first psoas muscle tear there was associated hip pain, not just on the side of the muscle tear, but on the opposite side as well. This and a general aching and soreness in pretty much all my joints (neck, shoulders, elbows, knees, ankles), and fatigue led to blood tests for rheumatoid arthritis and glandular fever (both which came back negative).
The second psoas muscle tear has been more problematic. It has effected the back. To the point where I couldn't sit, lie down, or walk without pain to the point of wanting to just scream (worst in sitting positions, supposedly due to pinching). So I got prescribed 'Mobic' (an NSAID) for pain relief and to deal with inflamation.
So, that is what is known.
The joint pains, leg pains, fatigue haven't gone away.
I think I will just list the symptoms, it'll make it easier:
-Dizziness/Light headedness (every time I stand, and intermitently at other times)
-Collapsing (caused by inability to hold my body up I give up trying to hold myself up, in BOTH cases I don't lose conciousness, and can generally get to my feet within 30 seconds at most)
-Vision loss (complete loss of vision for up to 10 seconds , partial changes to vision
-Aches in my joints (those listed above, and fingers)
-Huge muscle weakness
-Mild pins and needles/tingling sensations pretty much permanently up and down arms and legs. (I have had the pins and needles/tingling for as long as I can remember (at least the last 4-5 years), so they aren't as a result of the injury)
-Intermitent muscle spasms anywhere in the body
-Cramps, especially in feet.
-High blood pressure (today was 150/90)
-General burning sensations
-Tightness on both left and right sides of the chest area
-Aching just below the last 2 ribs on both sides.
-(The last few days) I have noticed my eyes are very dry.
-Occasional tightness/pain in the heart.
-Stomach pains (these were occuring before starting to use the NSAID)
-Disconnectedness (e.g. I'll just be standing there not sure of what I'm doing exactly then will realise a few seconds later OR I'll continue walking in a direction and it is like I'm viewing it from a distance and I'm walking towards traffic and I know I should change direction but just can't OR I'll stop mid sentence and be unsure what I was talking about)
I am also asthmatic (although I haven't taken any medication for well over 2 years, and am taking Concerta for ADHD.
There is an improvement in numerous symptoms while I am eating, but within about 15 minutes to 30 minutes of finishing I'm back to normal.
Does anyone have any ideas what could be going on? I think it is probably things as I can't find anything which displays ALL these symptoms.
It'd be much appreciated!
