At last the first appointment is nearly here. While very relieved, I’m starting to feel a little daunted as I have so many symptoms, not necessarily all related and I want to make sure that I cover the ones that are most likely important.
Pretty much all my joints hurt. There is a pin pointed pain that occurs on movement (which can be minimal) and in some joints is enough to make me crumple.
Pressure points on shoulder joints and cervical spine that are very painful to touch.
Stiffness, most joints all day (like frozen shoulder)
My limbs generally ache and some pain appears to be in muscles but may be just radiating from joints.
I have a sharp pain around my left kidney that comes and goes (urine dipstick for protein nitrites, leukocytes and blood shows nothing amiss).
Headaches, often in temples.
Fatigue which may be due to broken sleep as in pain at night - my body feels like a lead weight to turn over in bed and i can’t stay in one position long
Tingling in legs and hands easily become numb/ pins and needles.
Maybe reduced grip strength - dropping things a little more.
Lump in throat (like food stuck).
Is that all worth mentioning? Thanks.
