Although when I look back prior to that I would say I had some good and bad days but I never really thought much of it. At the age of 26 I had a full hystorectomy due to the pain I suffered,as well as feeling drained.
Anyway after damaging my back I eventually had to have 2 discs removed from my lower spin and I still haven't seemed to of recovered. I also suffer pains and weakness in my aend and legs well all over really. when I went for my after check up I tried explaining to the orthopedic how I felt, he requested a bone scan to check for osteoporosis. while there I explained I was in pain all over. I went on to explain that I couldn't even brush my hair some days, he didn't seem to care he just didn't understand why I had been refuted to him as I hadn't broken any bones so needless to say tests where fine.
so I decided to do some research of my own, even though I don't agree with self diagnosing but feel I don't get listened to. After I put my symptoms into a symptom checker it came back suggesting lupus. When I mentioned to my physiotherapiest he requested some blood tests. I got the results today although I still feel none of the wiser. He said the tests where all border line except my white blood cells where a little low, but nothing to worry to much about. he has now send me for yet another blood test to check my vitamin D.
my symptoms are, butterfly rash on my face, pain in my joints as well as random places from head to toe. Especially top of my legs and my for arms(Was told that was tennis elbow) I also have numbness is my hands and feet as I can't seem to stay warm. my fingers go really white. I suffer really badly with boil like sores and when given antibiotics they take a few courses to clear. I'm feeling really down in the dumps and wonder how much more I can take. And to top it all of I'm trying to live on 45 pound a week as I'm fighting for my ESA so on the minimum payment. which they then take deductions from for a social loan in 1994. sorry for rambling but I'm so close to just giving up. as I'm not living I'm just existing. thank you for taking the time to read my ramble cd
