I'm new here and I have been suffering with back pain for over 4 years and has slowly started to move to my hips, feet, knees, hands and shoulders. I have been constantly messed around by hospitals changing my diagnosis and sending me on my way without any help or explanation as to what is going on with me. At my last appointment with the rheumatologist I got discharged before I had even had my MRI scan done and I have yet to receive the results or any indication of a follow up which only ever happens if I ask to be seen too again. I then got a letter from them saying i have Fibromyalgia without even testing me for it or explaining what it is, they never mentioned it once face to face. I am 22 and can't get my life on track cause I have no help or understanding as too what is going on with my body, I can't take painkillers because of other medical problems and have tried everything except for pain relief through injections, the question I have is did anyone else struggle getting a diagnosis and if you have had injections how do i get referred for them and how long do they last and would i ever have to do them myself?
Thank you for your help and reading my rant.
