Hello everyone, I haven’t posted in a while as I’ve been just trying to deal with things.
But today I saw my lovely consultant. I can honestly say I feel like he’s on my side, cause illness can make you feel so alone sometimes.
But to know he cares so much and really listens to all my moans and symptoms and just doesn’t mind is just so relieving.
So after many months of monitoring my symptoms and repeating bloods and doing more bloods. He finally diagnosed me with fibromyalgia and m.e today.
He said that he still isn’t going to rule out Lupus as he things there’s a chance that I could be in early stages of Lupus cause in some cases lupus can progress slowly over years.
I’ve been taking amytriptaline for many months now but he’s prescribed me hydroxy as well.
They’ve also ordered a brain scan as I’ve been having issues with my glands, inflammation up inside the left side of my nose. Also worryingly lost hearing in my left ear slightly.
I’m only 36 so shouldn’t be loosing hearing at all at this age according to them.
So regardless of the diagnosis and future tests I feel comforted in the fact that I have the most amazing consultant and supportive gp.
