Without going too much into my past, I'll cut the long story short
I've suffered from exhaustion and painful joints for roughly 2 to 3 years. I put my change of exhaustion down to my stress, anxiety levels and low moods due to a past experience, and my joint pain down the Hypermobility - but I feel there's more to it then that.
I've been to my GP many of times for blood tests, then was referred for Physio which diagnosed me with Hypermobility and put me through sessions of acupuncture (which didn't make any difference), to then be referred for an MRI scan, which came back clear. 2 weeks ago I got the 'clear' results from my GP who sat me down and discussed depression with me - I know I suffer from bad anxiety, but this is due to past relationship experience, which cannot be solved with a pill. My GP prescribed me with Fluoxetine which has caused me heavy bleeding ever since and made me more exhausted.
I'm going back in 2 days to ask to come off this tablet, and hopefully start a new route to look at other solutions.
I've researched CFS/ME and the symptoms are spot on to how I feel - constantly feeling unwell and sick, headaches on and off for no reason, join pain without a clear explanation, difficulty with concentration and finding the right words (also suggested dyslexia, but no), on and off abdominal pains (changed contraceptive pill 3 times), difficulty sleeping near enough every night, sensitive to light as I always have to have the main lights off in my office and the blinds half shut, bad balance every now and then, very clumsy and call myself 'butter fingers', struggle with getting into work on time and staying awake at my desk, and uncontrollable body temperature (freezing but clammy feet and hands).
What would people suggest this could be? As I think my GP is running out of options!
