Hi, im new & im so hoping someone can help x so back in July I started to feel really unwell achy all over, stiff toes & fingers. Tiredness & fluy symptoms Felt like it was never ending. Most mornings when i got up it felt like i was constantly walking on sand. I just couldnt get going. Ive had these symptoms for years but this time everything just seemed to be geting worse. Im 32. On top of this I have what I can only describe as toothache in my arm. Everytime i move my arm i feel like a cat is scratching my veins. (im right handed). It started off in my wrist & now it feels like the pain keeps travelling back & forth from my elbow to my wrist. Im of sick from work at the moment i do office work. I cant open a can of soup, put the plug in the bath. Open a botte etc etc. This pain is just awful. Some nights I get sharp pains feels like electric shock down the sides of my body. Tried everything over the counter, Doc prescribed pregabalin & Co-Codamol. This took edge of a bit but just made me so sleepy & clumsy. Nerve conduction study come back as problem in C7 - C8 area. But cervical MRI showed nothing wrong. I feel like I've tried everything im absolutely exhausted chiropractor (thinks its bursitis) reflexologist (thinks its to do with neck). I was convinced i had lupus or RA cause of my symptoms Finally got to see a rheumatologist and was diagnosed with Sjogerns - he has put me on hydroxychloroquine & gave me a steroid injection in the bum didnt do anything for me tho. He said the arm pain could be cause everything is inflamed. This has been the longest 7 months of pain & i do feel like im never gonna get well again. I no i have a diagnosis now but i just feel numb. If anyone could give me any advice i would really be greatful. ps sorry this is a long rant X
