hi all i have replied to a similar post as i am so depressed i feel like i cannot go on.
I have just been to my gp for the results of bloods and as usual all are negative ... everything is clear! so I really do not understand why I am I such pain I actually broke down in the surgery and said I feel like jumping off a bridge she looked at me wide eyed and prescribed Naproxen as initially she was testing for RA apparently my result was 10. something so lower than the 30 ( I do not understand the ratings sorry) I said what about fibro she said that is muscle pain... well I have that too my legs are so heavy I want to cut them off, my neck is stiff I almost fell down the stairs as my left knee gave way on the way out but hey (its al in my mind) that's what I feel like when I go to see her. I don't want to be brushed off with pills I want answers . my o/h has said that if I do not get any he will come to the surgery and create a fuss but that is not my way I just want an end to the pain I am crying again as I just cant understand why when every joint in my body is so painful my left leg was so swollen last night that when I took sock off I hade a deep indentation and no contours to my ankle in fact no ankle! I just want to know what does it take to get a gp to listen as it is real pain real loss of sleep and horrendous weight gain (this is the thing she points out as soon as I walk in every time) it is rapid onset too as before it was just elbows but now it is everywhere my lower back was also swollen last night ( I think I will get my o/h to video or take photos when the joints are so bad and I cannot get up out of bed or up or down stairs or off a chair without looking over 100 years of age sorry rant over but I have had enough of pain and at the moment I cannot see anything worth going on for
