I am new to this forum in regards to registering but I have read over it for months. I am 27, male.
I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia as of about a year ago. I do not agree with this disagnosis and sometimes it is so scary I feel like I am going to die (quite literally).
I have dealt with a lot of pain in my life. I know it can be unbearable and make you feel like you want to jump from a bridge but this is not the type of thing I am feeling.
Its like I am getting so weak, that I get this weird extreme pain inside of my bones, and it feels like my body is going to collapse and I am just going to die.
I am so nervous right now because I have my good weeks and my bad weeks, and this just happens to be a terrible week. I really am more or less trying to reach out to somebody and to find out if they have heard anything common or simliar. Even to write this, its like its draining every last bit of my soul, and I do not even have the energy to keep on typing these words. I feel so weak, and frail, and almost like i have a 110F degree fever (which I checked my tempature and its 98.7) but I dont. I am hopeless. I have told my doctors of this, and they keep on trying me on different medications (Cymbalta, Elavil, Lyrica and now the newest Toporal). None of these medications have helped, infact it feels like they make it worse.
I honestly feel like any second I am going to collapse. I get out of bed, I cannot think clearly. I can barely move, I am so stiff, it is unbearable. I feel like I have been hit by train every day, and I should be in a body cast. Not only that - I honestly just feel like I am running a 110F fever and I am just going to collapse. Its like I am forcing myself to stay up during the day, and the whole time my body is pushing itself down.
I cannot go on another day like this. I dont know what to do, or where to start for help. I have been tested for everything from head to toe and all my tests come up normal, thus being Fibromyalgia. Well if this is supposedly Fibro why in the **** are NONE of these medications helping me. Do people with this condition really suffer like me?
I know this entire post probably makes no sense from beginning to end, but if someone could please reach out and help me or talk to me and let me know if this is common with fibro or other possiblities of what it could be, I would be more than greatful. Thanks
