Hi all, This is my 1st post and just looking for any advice or help with my health issues!
I’m 35 year old, 6ft tall, 11.5 stone in weight.
I have never really had any major health issues until now. About 5 years ago I hurt my lower back at work. I couldn’t walk so I never got it examined, took about 6 weeks before I was back on my feet again.
Since the above incident I have visited the doctors about 20 times over the years with these symptoms.
chronic constipation, urinary problems, shooting pains down left leg, pains down my arms and tingling, stiff painful neck and shoulder pains, extreme fatigue and tiredness, muscle aches and lack of strength. ( recently found out that a numb bum can be associated with back problems which I also have)
Now these symptoms flair up and go away except the chronic constipation. Currently in the middle of one of these flair up’s and going into my 3rd week with it. ( can’t work )
I have been tested for everything out there and they diagnosed me with IBS-C because they couldn’t find anything, I now have been referred to a Neurologist and awaiting an appointment but it could take up to 12 weeks.
Could a lower back injury cause all these symptoms? Could this be MS?
Really struggling just now…
Thanks for reading this.
