hi am chez am 33 am from rhyl north wales .a good few years ago aprox 13 years ago I started getting achy painful pains in my hands I went to see my doctor I told him that I was told it may be mild form of arthritis he told me I was to young for arthritis I was about 20 then at the time I had just found out I was pregnant with my 2nd son so he gave me nurofen which when I read leaflet said not to take when pregnant so safe to say I changed my doctors surgery .
anyway years went bad and the pains in my hands became the norm and I was use to them I knew they were there but I barely flinched at them then 5 years ago my brother passed away and couple years later I started suffering with chronic knee pains I thought was because id been on a bike for 1stime in years even though I only went around the block which litrally took 10 minutes so I went doctors and he gave me tramadol they were horrific made me so ill anyway the doctor tried tell me id fallen and sprayed my knee I was like what both off them plus I hadn't even fallen at all he sent me for xray which funny enough came back all clear I was also referred to physiotherapy .
over the past year or so iv had more phyio seen umpteen doctors obviously all with different diagnosis seen reuthmatologist ,musclosketelo,physio,xrays,ect but still no definut diagnosis doctors are leaning towards fibromyalgia which my mum also has she has had it for years and one day I saw on her facebook status how much pain she was in this was bout year ago roughly so I sent her a inbox message saying I know how ya feel am aching all over shoulders hurt elbow joints shoulders wrists neck ankles feet knees you name it it hurts my mum said that's excactly what I get so she told me go back doctors and push it cos from the minute I told her my symptoms she said was same as hers and she thinks I have fibro too.so here I am now on pip in pain all over feeling like am 100 years old I cant even sit comfortabally without being in pain .
I cant even take kids out anywhere because I cant walk too far I have a walking stick to help me if needs be but I try not to use it because to look at I look fine so I wouldn't want anyone to judge me ,iv had that all my life I do carry it with me as it folds away. .
about 3 weeks ago my leg went on me I was stood casually printing off some colouring pics off for the kids and the next minute I got this shooting pain in my hip on my right hand side and pain straight down my leg it killed was painful I went doctors and the doctor sent me for another xray came back normal ....been trying get in doctors for appointment but its hard to even get them answer phones never mind appointment .
