Hi everyone, thank you for taking the time to read this as this week I have been really worried about the symptoms that I have been having and wondered whether they relate to fibro.
It started with the usual tiredness and trying to push through it as we all do who have this fibro to contend with. I came out of the supermarket last week & thought that I was going to black out and it took me all my time to shake it off, I didn't get the sweats and spots before my eyes as is usually a warning of a faint coming on. Since then I have felt very unbalanced when out and about and that very same evening I was absolutely wiped out and could not even muster the energy to speak to anyone - I felt that ill. The next day I was still a little lightheaded off balance & am now staring to feel a little better slowly. I wondered whether it could be to do with the fact that I used to have full blow Menier's Disease with the sickness vertigo, hearing loss and balance problems although I have not had that for years. I have just got a hearing aid at 54 cos it has damaged my hearing, perhaps that could have had an impact on how i feel?
I feel that I don't want to keep going to the doctors as I feel that I am already labelled as a Hypochondriac - I know its stupid, but over the last years I have had so many health issues with having Hashimoto's and High BP + high Cholesterol etc etc. At one point I was having infection after infection with my sinuses and chest when they said I had asthma, but that was before I got medication for my thyroid. I hope you can help me shed some light on what these symptoms are as it is all getting me so down.
Many thanks again
