Hi all, I know that no one here can diagnose but would be grateful for any thoughts. I’m due to see my gp again Monday and am aware they probably think I’m a bit of a hypochondriac, so I’d appreciate some feedback on whether I should be pushing this or if I just have a lot of unrelated niggles which I should ignore.
I’ve 34 and have suffered with aches and pains, bad back and hips(mostly at night, after inactivity) since my early 20’s. I’ve never seen a dr for it, just slept very badly and relied on heat packs and deep heat during bad periods (there have also been periods when it’s been fine). In January I started to get daily headaches, eye and face pain, this was followed by muscle twitching. Headaches eased by March, but I then noticed I had raised glands in my neck, throat, collar bone and groin. Full blood count and esr came back normal and gp suggested I go away and try to ignore them - they are still raised. By May I was waking with stiff and sore fingers and toes, no obvious heat or swelling in them. The last week am feel exhausted and ache all over.
I have hypothyroid which is controlled with medication. All my symptoms seem quite vague and minor and I’m wondering if I should just try to ignore them and see how this progresses or if I should try again with the gp?
Thanks for anyone who bothered to read all that!
