Hi everybody...I've been self diagnosing as feel ridiculous going to the doctors with various pains all over my body and feeling like an old lady instead of a forty year old. Can someone please tell me what I'm experiencing is fibromyalgia? Started after my one year old was born. Very fast natural birth, he was two weeks early and I was booked on for a section so not expecting what happened and did it with only gas and air so not sure if this added to my discomfort since then. I have an extremely painful right hip, painful left shoulder and back pain (baby is heavy though) constantly stiff when I stand up and painful feet till I get moving. I also suffer from a burning sensation in the middle of my back which spreads to the left. Trouble staying asleep also although that could also be the baby. Does any of this make sense? I've been given naproxen for my hip but it makes me feel spaced so not sure about taking it a lot. Thanks xxx
