I have been chronically I'll for 9 to 10 years. Everything blew up after I was burning the candles at both ends, work, college, nights out, stimulants and sport. I've always had migraines which led to other aches and pains. I used to lots of sport when I was younger but doing exercise now makes me crash and become Ill along with a migraines. I have chronic pain down one side of my body, never on both sides at once.. Burning on the right side and pressure pain on the left side. This is constant and then I get migraines on top. I worry and get stressed. I lost my job so have little money. I had a child and things got worse due to lack of sleep. I recently read about adrenal fatigue but I'm scared to ask the doctor about it as I always get fobbed off from past experience.
Symptoms I have include the above, my pain is worse when tired, stimulants make me exhausted and increase pain, dizziness where everything goes black, can't quench thirst, always have a dry mouth, pain and tenderness round lower ribs and back, history of cystitis, protein in urine but nothing grown on culture, I have also noticed a patch of discoloured skin by my ribs on the front which I noticed whilst pregnant so thought it was that but it's still there. I have PMS where everything is exacerbated. Anxiety and low blood pressure. Foggy head.
The Neurologist has sent a letter asking Gp to refer me to rheumatology so will be seeing the gp about that next week.
Could I have an adrenal problem? What do I ask the doctor to test? I've had this so long, im only 31, I just want answers. I'd do am adrenal test online but I can't afford. I've been trying supplements and can barely afford them.
Any advice would be great.
