Hi everyone, i am currently undiagnosed with fibro or any arthritas but i am in past 4/5 years since having a herniated disk L5/S1 more s1 physio said had an awful 3/ half months till it "burned out" physio's words, but ever since became diabetic with high bp and flare ups of siatcia and low back pain, which then went to a deep aching around hips (like a band) and weak legs and achy left knee every time weather gets cold, then a year ago i started getting pain in the back of my neck, middle of shoulder blades and a mild burning in that area and down my arms (have the aching in legs and sometimes the light burning feeling and restless legs but as i had those really bad from 12 years old didnt think much of it, till i started getting headaches front left forehead and back of head on left but i also past 2 months have "skull ache" and not a headache with it, and deep deep aching in my left arm
And elbow bits like funny bone pain when you knock it, also had 2 different times of pulled rib muscles first time doc sent me for a chest xray as she thought is crakes a rib coughing even though it was one cough (result was muscle strain) then it happened not long after that healed, i have had a few months ago a week if a teiching left hand was quite strong obvisous spasams took some magnesium tablets for a few days and it stopped now it feel lime it is twitching but its not when i look at it, im extremely tired as one min im fine full of beans next i am Drained like a battery loses its power just drained and i have to stop and either nap or just lay down, just this winter chamge of weather i am really struggling getting going in the mornings im stiff aching all over like ive been hit by a bus, or feeling like i have flu each morning and around 2/3pm im drained feel like a zombie some days as so tired, i also take a while to go to sleep at night and wake early hours by aching/pain/needing to turn constantly from stiffness/aching. Ive noticed i drop things more not majorly but more than normal, all these symptoms i have left as old age but all these along with now when i walk i noticed that low down in my spine/back/sacroiliac area i now have a clonking/grinding noise and feeling (not pain) so ive been doctors and he did some blood tests one for a gene in anklosing spondylitas (i was negative) and for inflammation which that one came back above average at 1.9 mpas should be no more than 1.7 so hes done more bloods (4 tubes in total) im just feeling a bit lost theres something up but im unsure what. Ive heard that fibro can come on from sudden emotional upset/stress ( i have alot of stress and emotional grief of losing my father in space of 4 weeks from finding out he had stage 4 terminal bone cancer from
Spending 5 years being "clear" from
Throat cancer he had chemi and radio and had been going to every single check up and no one noticed. So it was a sudden unexpected loss taht die to the shock being there for family i didnt grieve or it hit me for 6 months after and i fell apart.
