I was just getting upright, all even and looking into the next stage of treatment, when my stomach starting causing issues.
A fair few months ago my partner rushed me into accident and emergency because my stomach was in agony. I got some pain relief, some fluids and some blood tests, then told was probably an infection and the fibromyalgia was making it seem worse.
I struggled on for months with stomach issues, until last month I couldn't take it any more. My GP sent me for a gastroscopy.
However between the referral and the procedure things started getting worse, I lost a lot of weight, could hardly eat, and taking medication was near impossible.
Went in for the procedure, having the sedation knocked me out for about three days, part of the fibro sensitivity to medication thing.
They told me I have a sliding hiatus hernia, which made me a little angry because accident and emergency and my partner thought that my fibro was making my stomach seem worse then it worse, when in fact I was in the process of gaining a hernia.
So then got told I have to wait up to a fortnight before making an appointment with the GP. Still got about a week to go on that one.
Still losing weight. Still struggling with food and drink, so dehydrated. Can not really take any of my medication. So my pain is through the roof, my sleep is all over the place, my muscles are really tight and cramped a lot of the time etc etc.
Breathing is quite difficult, and I am beyond exhausted. I think i have left the house maybe once in the past fortnight.
I am at such a low ebb with all of this. My mental health difficulties, which are many, are really really bad at the moment.
Every day is a complete struggle.
Just don't know what to do with myself.
