i need a little help and some opinions if poss as i am feeling absolutely rubbish!
I seem to have a few things going on and I am not sure if they are linked or not. So firstly, I had a spell a couple of months ago where i had UTIs a couple of times (I'm not sure if it was one infection that didn't clear up properly the first time or if i got a second one). i didn't really have any bad uti symptoms but I did have a stabbing pain in my 'loin' as the doc put it, so he suspected maybe there was a sneaky little kidney stone maybe.
So anyway, I had an x-ray, came back all fine. I then had an ultrasound this week and I am waiting for the results but the sonographer did say there wasn't anything obvious showing up. which is good in a way but obviously i still get pain and so I'm a bit disheartened if you know what I mean? as well as that, I have been feeling more drained than ever lately, and i also have a bit of a vertigo sensation going on. I have been having headaches although not every day, and not always massively severe, and i have also been getting the shakes, a bit like when you crave sugar, or when you have over exercised (not that I ever do that hehe).
I just don't know where to go next. I met with my rheumy two weeks ago and we reduced my hydroxy to three doses a week (it was my idea to try and lower it, just to see really if anything happened), but that was only two weeks ago. My joints are a bit sore and my muscles feel painful and weak but i feel like it might be something else, rather than the reduced dosage.
I just feel like it's all making me have anxiety as well which doesn't help. Last night I just cried as I convinced myself something is majorly wrong and i'm going to die. then the next minute I'm fine and convinced it could be something as simple as a vitamin deficiency. i went into work this morning, my manager sent me home as i was hot so now I'm sat at home wondering what to do. ahhh well at least I have a nice cup of tea on the go.
Any suggestions would be amazing!
Lots of love
