Hi I had a hysterectomy in April this year and got a hospital acquired infection afterwards which took two months to get rid of as i am allergic to just about every known antibiotic there is. Somewhere during this time I got horrednous migraines, incredible chest pain and every joint in my body aches along with feeling fatigued to my core. I went on HRT in May and am also anaemic and am awaiting the results of a failed iron infusion to see if I have retained any of it- allergic to that too. The specialist at the hospital is saying you have Fibro but my GP is a bit sceptical and the gyny thinks it may just be with panadol just to get through the day or to get some sleep at night when I can't take it any more and life is pretty much hell. I work full time in a job that can be quite demanding mentally and boy some days I struggle to put two words together or remember anything. I also now have bursitis in both hips and lower back problems to add to the fun. I will get in to see a rhuematologist some time next year. I yhave seen just about every 'ologist' there is and spent a small fortune doing this. My blood work shows slightly elevated CPR and ESR along with anaemia but not much else and boy have I been tested for just abo uteverything. I think I am now just frustrated and would like a definitive answer and for the Docs all to work together which after 6 months is slowly happening. Sorry for ranting. Is my expereince a common one? I keep getting told "we klnow what you don't have" Wow so happy about that!
