Just wondered if anyone here has multiple health problems along side the fibro ?
I have Sjogrens Syndrome and anxiety disorder as well as clinical depression and agoraphobia . I also suffer severe IBS and gastric reflux !
Some days it feels as though as soon as I get one thing under control , something else is waiting to start !
One of the scary things for me has been the amount of chest pain I get . First time it happened I thought I was having a heart attack , but the pain is in the breast bone and surrounding muscle rather than being inside and all tests for heart problems have been clear.
Because of all the different health problems I seem to have been poked and prodded by lots of different specialists at a variety of different hospitals and I'm no nearer to finding solutions for the problems I have . It's no wonder I get depressed ! Problems with my stomach mean some medications for pain management are unsuitable for me , it's a fine balance treating one problem without exacerbating another !
The Agoraphobia makes getting to doctor or hospital appointments interesting to say the least . I often have to cancel and re-arrange them . I sometimes just feel a prisoner of my own body .
So that's me......... I'm not always this whiny , just having a bad day !
