After months of feeling tired, aching (particularly right side), headaches, blurry vision, countless blood tests, two MRIs, borderline lumbar puncture results that the medical profession just doesn't seem interested in, my GP has got me a referral to a rheumatologist - in June.
By then it will be almost a year since I've been feeling - well, crap, to be honest. What would be the kicker is if by the appointment I feel great and back to 'normal'.
Anyone else feel that they forgot what it is to feel 'normal'? I may be luckier than most, I do have days when I'm kind of okay - not 100% but as if my tank is almost full, but it soon empties and if I do too much then I'm laid on the sofa by 3.00 pm, if I push on like an idiot I can spend the next day as if I've got the hugest hangover. I personally don't think that's normal as I've argued with various GPs. I'm not 87, I'm 47. No, it's not hormones, or my 'age' or because I'm 'stressed'. Sigh.
Just a rant because I know I'm boring my family with these non-specific symptoms.
Take care all. x
