The S on my keyboard is intermittent. Please excuse any mistake. I can pell haha
I am new here but jut looking for help. I have no diagnosis of ms.
I am off to docs on monday and could do with some advice please.
I was diagnosed with hashimoto’s thyroiditis several years ago. I complained of pains long before this and they are getting worse and wore.
The docs told me “it’s probably fybromyalgia. Lots of people with hashimotos have it.” They gave me tramadol and sent me home without aking where the pain was, what it’ like or anything.
I go for blood tests regularly and they adjut levothyroxine. They say my levels are fine and send me home. I can’t understand why my symptoms are getting worse.
I complained of IBS and they tested for coeliacs. Negative. They give me more tramadol and send me home.
I say I’m exhausted and they say that it’ because I have four children (two of them have tourettes adhd asd sleep disorders etc.).
I am 32 and very happily married yet I am so down. I went from working 12 hour shifts in a busy pub and loving it to barely walking down my street without pain and fatigue.
I have moved to a new area and am going to the gp for the first time and was wondering if somebody here could tell me if my symptoms are enough to warrant at leat looking into possible MS.
Despite thyroid levels I am tired and exhausted. I got bell’s palsy 6 years ago and it still isn’t right. I am clumsy and fall down more and more. I am very forgetful. I very often feel like a voodoo doll. feels like needles poking everywhere. I wake in the night with similar pains in my wrists and fingers. My knuckles are very bad lately. My hips and knees hurt so much I have to stop twice on the way upstairs. Pains in my back are excruciating. I shake. Sometimes I go to have a sip of water and my head/neck jars and shakes. My feet and legs cramp and contort lasting for hours/days. The most weird is that sometimes my limbs especially left arm is numb or just feels like it doesn’t belong to me.
I do have thyroid problems but I can’t help but feel fobbed off. Should I be pushing for more tests and help or should I accept this is the way my life is now and be done with it?
