I am seriously wondering if I have lupus and fibromyalgia after reading up on both of the diseases. I don't get joint pain as such but aching painful neck, shoulders, back, jelly legs and arms, heaviness/lead feeling in my arms and legs. I can't hold my arms up for more than a couple of seconds before they feel so heavy, I have to lower them. I now avoid stairs and slight inclines due to pain and jelly feeling in my legs as well as the aching and aching back when I walk. My symptoms seem to have got worse over this past few weeks. I don't think the damp, cold weather is helping either as my hands turn purple and I have struggked to keep warm lately. I am driving myself mad as I have tried pain killer after pain killer aswell as naproxen which have no effect on me. I am so worried. I get fobbed off when I see the g.p. And I swear they think I am a hypochondriac as I am always up the surgery. I need help before I go completely mad. It is uncomfortable showering having to lift my arms and legs, brushing my hair is even hard work due to the achy, heaviness in my arms. I feel like a cripple. I have been took off e.s.a. And told I am capable to work which is causing me so much stress in being forced to sign on to j.s.a. I am in a right mess as I know I can't work. Believe it or not, I scored 0 and was on e.s,a. Before being diagnosed with lupus with mental health problems. Surely lupus makes my condition 10 times worse. What the hell is going on. I have no housing benefit as that has been stopped also. Had no money since 1st November. Housing, I am trying to sort out as I am now on j.s,a. I am doing a mandatory appeal at the moment but in the meantime don't have a penny coming in. First lot of j.s.a. Isn't due until next Monday. In a right mess and would be stuffed if I didn't have my mum and we both live together. She is having to support me and it's so bloody wrong. Sorry to rant on but I am in a right state.
