Hi I am just writing to say hello!
I have until now been on the Thyroid version of healthunlocked as I was convinced that this was my problem due to strong heriditory evidence. A whole hostof blood tests have however pronounced me Normal! I have however been diagnosed as having fibromyalgia and vit d insufficiency. I am currently living on codydramol and duluxotine. They help a bit but not with nausea and hot sweats. I think they just take the edge off the pain and give me some felling of having energy. Although I am wrecked by the afternoon and ready to collapse. I have a host of aches and pains mainly radiating from my spine and lower back. I am currently working as a doctors receptionist and also selling cosmetics from a well known brand. I have two children, an annoting ex husband and a wonderful husband who is my right arm most of the time. I like to try and keep busy just to prove to myself I still can but it is becoming more and more difficult week by week. Somedays I do not know how I get out of bed. I am concerned that my son aged 6 is probably going to end up with this diagnosis as he displays a lot of the complaints I always had as a child and still do. He often finds havnig his hair washed painful and is clumsy etc. I wonder if anyone else has seen fibro in their or other children?
