Other than urinary reflux as a child, which was corrected surgically, I have always been a healthy person. After the a complicated recovery from the birth of my son, my health went downhill. I passed out on 4 different occasions. I started getting visual disturbances like there was a glare on everything. I had a dull headache everyday. I lactated for 1 year after my son was born. I started having pelvic pain and abnormal bleeding and discharge. I was then diagnosed with endometriosis and ovarian cysts after seeing 3 different OB/GYNs. They also said that it looked like I have irritable bowel syndrome. Then I started having extreme fatigue and muscle pain, joint pain and stiffness. I then was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Then I started having problems with severe wrist pain which was later diagnosed as hypermobility syndrome. I also developed allergies during this time (most notably post nasal congestion). What is wrong with me? There are times where I have a really hard time believing that these things are not connected somehow. I was nearly perfectly healthy before the birth of my son and now I feel horrible. I have seen family doctors, nurse practitioners, orthopedists, OB/GYNs and they don't seem to think these are connected. I have more symptoms too but the above are the ones that jumped out the most at the moment. Could I be a hypocondriac? Can a hypocondriac feel symptoms?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
