Pain πŸ˜“

β€’2 Replies

Hi everyone,

I am 22 and have been in constant severe pain for 7 or more years now. It's not just the pain though I can't sleep, I'm anxious, im constantly fatigued and I can't deal with it.

My dad has a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. I have seen a rheumatologist, spine specialist and physio with no luck as to what is going on..

I need help... I'm fed up of this constant pain.

Hi posyrose and welcome to the forum.

I'm sorry to hear about everything you're going through. I would suggest going back to your GP and take a list with you of all your symptoms. Tell them that your dad has fibromyalgia, and would it be possible that you have it? If you get no joy is there another GP in the practice that you could see? Failing that, I would suggest looking for a new GP. You could also ask for a referral to another rheumatologist for a 2nd opinion.

Good luck x

that is hard on you when nobody can diagnose, my suggestion would be trial some acupuncture, and arrange to see an Endochrinologist who has knowledge of body functions, pain, and will test you further,, have you ever had nerve conduction studies?
