I wondered if I could get some help and advice. I have recently looked up the causes of many symptoms I have been having for years, but has got worse with age. I have not been diagnosed but FM came up when I was researching my symtoms. I am 23 years old and femaIe, I have had muscle aches and pains all over for years and as I got older I have noticed especially my back, neck, shoulders and legs hurt. I get cramps in my hands and feet easy. Every so often I get all over muscle spasums and these opccor mostly at night in bed and always before I am asleep.
I have bad hair thinning and hair loss. I have always had tiredness even with enough sleep. I often get events of extreme tiredness and/or headaches. My joints can ache and click a lot. One of my knees is the worst as it constantly clicks and I have had a operation to remove excessive scar tissue. The scar tissue was not there from any sort of injury and was said to be an unsual amount. The only thing that can relife me of pain on most ocassions is a hot bath or show, very hot! I have been diagnosed with IBS by my GP. I have aniexty very often and can feel low. I also have problems regulating my body tempreature especially at night I am like a radiator, even on cold snowy days like these with no heating on. The aches and pains do get better if I do the extra exercise such as the gym. If I stop the symptoms worsen the change of wheather can also effect this. My legs, arms, lower back and neck in particular get very stiff and sore, I can not sit in one position for very long and I have to constantly move. I get a pins and needles sensason very quickly in any part of my body. Every so often I get sharp sudden pains.
I am thinking to talk to my GP of my symptoms and mention I found out info on FM. The problem is I just moved to Germany and I am awating my Health insurance card. To me my symptoms match to those of FM but could it all be in my head?
Thanks for any help and comments!
