Some people have told me to keep in touch about this. Finally I can stop thinking it's all in my head. For the past 4 days I've had this horrible pain in my ribcage which the doctor called a trapped spasm in between my ribs. My mum mentioned fibromyalgia because the other gp I seen who was meant to be referring me to rheumatology didn't bother to even do it. He told me to stand up and began pressing down my back without even taking me jumper off I hit the roof at every single touch and I was crying too. He said I don't even need to see a rheumatology because he can tell just look looking at me. I also have joint hypermobility syndrome which he says is responsible for the cracking my bones make every 2 minutes.
Some of the symptoms I experience sever fatigue at the slightest activity and constant unrefreshed sleep. Pain in neck radiating down arm. Stiffness. Lower upper back pain, hip pain, burning sensations going down legs, painful feet, headaches, tingling in forearms. Tingling in legs in bed. Trouble getting to sleep. Bad short term memory. Social anxiety and depression and don't forget very sore to touch (white fingerprint on skin pressure) and that's basically everywhere on the top half of my body and my thighs. Fluctuating bowel movement.
I'm just looking for a bit of advice as to what you guys have done for self help rather than taking medication? I have heard vitamins ect are good? I am currently on amitriptyline, tramadol, dihydrocodiene and robaxin.
Any help would be much appreciated you are all such strong people. Ps sorry for such a long message just want to not feel pain for a little while
