I have been living with pain on a daily basis with no diagnsis except fibromyalgia, gastrophoresis, thyroid cancer. It started with dizzy spells to loss of equilibrium. Rash on face first that got worse when in sun. Rash then moved to arms, legs. anything exposed to direct sun. Then went to constant sickness everytime I ate. Couldn't hold food down, couldn't go to the bathroom, diagnosed with acid reflux. At that time the muscles slowy started to ache and became weaker. I also had hard time breathing which they said was emphazema. Further tests stomach emptying test showed food was not being digested properly thus being diagnosed with gastrophoresis. That in turn made gallbladder not work and died off becoming infecting requiring emergency surgery to be removed. That alleveiated some of the sickness. Next tests showed thyroid was 4x size. Then there was a goiter. Dr. thought maybe not emphazema went to endocronolgist who then stated airway was was being closed off by thyroid. Had that remove to find goiter was canerous. Then came the radiation. In the meantime muscles were getting weaker and the pain at times became so unbearable had had many trips to hosp for pain. To this day the pain in my muscles on days become so intense it is hard to move, walk, or do anything. This has altered my life to the point of no enjoyability what so ever. I use to be a very active person to not doing a ***n thing. I sit home all the time have no energy and to do anything with my children.
Now I also have a friend that is starting with simular syptoms with the muscular part. She is in severe pain and feels as though her muscles are shifting within her body. We both work at the factory where there is numerous chemicals and plastics that burn off.
