Hi all am I going mad? about 14 months ago I went to my GP as my back and shoulder was really painful she gave me some co codamol to this day I am still on it.
Over the months my symptoms are getting worse and the more I research Fibromyalgia the more I'm convinced I may have it.
I've had bloods about 6 months ago and it showed I was going through the menopause so Dr put me on HRT. I have been back to the Dr twice since then to be told my current symptoms maybe to do with the menopause.
These are the symptoms I told the Dr
1.pain everywhere someday's unmanageable even with meds someday's just like a dull toothache, arms and legs often feel like they are filled with concrete.
2. Terrible short term memory(for which the Dr laughed)
3. extremely tired even after 10 hours sleep and often have to sleep mid afternoon just to carry on.
5. intolerance to loud noises
Have you ever heard the 'menopause' is this bloody painful! Reading back the above i sound like an old women i'm 49 for christ sake and used to love life.
I have to go back in 3 weeks and unsure what to say or do
advice would be great if any of you have had a similar experience
much love x
