I have ITP and my mom passed away from Lupus. She was only 55 and I am 46, Have been having weird cramping from my back region to the front of my sternum. And it happens on both sides, I can't laugh, lift heavy objects or lay down certain ways or I am in pain, The cramping is so bad that I have to lay down to get it to go away. If I turn my neck certain way it also cramps severely. Anyone else having these issues. And I don't have insurance not till April 14, 2015.
I am scared and Can't afford to see a doctor until that date. My platelets aren't low, at least I don't think they are and I am always sleepy. I take B-12 and Iron pill's. and I go to bed at 10:00 PM and sleep till 6:30 AM so not like I haven't had enough sleep. Also experiencing weird numbness followed by a migraine. Ok I admit I am falling apart.
