I was just wondering if anyone had experienced similar symptoms. I seem to have a mix of different pain/sensations at different times.
I often get the ''hit by a bus/ coming down with flu'' feeling all throughout my body and have muscle aches terribly but sometimes the pain is a really deep throbbing pain which almost feels like its coming from my bones? Typically this is in my legs but it affects my arms too. On a scale of 1-10 it tends to come on at around a 4/5 being an achy pain with twinges of 6/7 pain that last a few seconds/minutes and then the pain goes back to the aching sensation.
Alongside this I am experiencing what I thought was muscle weakness, there was a time recently where I was out at a restaurant and my legs began to ache, I was there for around a couple of hours and tried to ignore the pain the best I could, when I came out of the restaurant It was hurting a lot but I had to drive (in hindsight I probably shouldn't have done so.) By the time I got home It was really bad and as I tried to walk up the stairs into my flat my legs just gave way and I suddenly could not get up or move due to the pain.
At this point I was in floods of tears and sobbing from the pain which I would rate an 8/10 on the pain scale.
Luckily my partner was with me and he was able to scoop me up and carry me into our flat and onto our bed, he immediately reached for my painkillers ( I took two Co-Dryramol 500mg) but the pain persisted for at least another hour.
Alongside the pain my muscles felt incredibly stiff and weak, I could not move them at all.
I assumed that this was inflammation of my muscles but I cant find much info on this.
Has anyone had similar experiences?
