I'm completely new to forums of any kind but I'm lying here in so much pain I figured I'd take my mind of it, here goes.
My story: I am a 24 year old women and back in 2012/2013 I was diagnosed with 2 slipped disks, one that was pushing against my sciatica nerve and the other well... Even too this day it barely gets mentioned. I ended up having surgery to remove some of the damaged disk in late 2013 and even that was a complete nightmare operation due to the hospital I had it done at (all I know is something happened with my blood pressure and my breathing, no details. I was under for 4.5 hours for a 1.5 hour operation... Anyhow) things ticked by I was still in pain so more doctors appointments, physiotherapy referral in the end. Done a course of physiotherapy, 2016 came and then was checked out for rheumatoid arthritis as I had inflammation in my eye. She ruled that out and sent me for a blood test and I was then referred to MSK with the talk of fibromylalgia. After an appointment there I was boarder line for it on the touch test but never was the mental side of things mentioned really. The depression, anxiety, trouble with sleep, panic attacks, ibs etc I've suffered with since 2006. He did however diagnose me with hypermobility in my knees, wrists and fingers I got kicked back to physiotherapy and then referred to hydrotherapy which hurts like hell afterwards and waiting on the list for acupuncture.
I have no idea what to do as no one seems to have any clue what is actually wrong with me, is it worth harassing my doctors? I'm in too much pain to work, I have pain in my elbows, my back, my knees, my wrists, my fingers ache all the time, I drop things constantly.. And then trying to deal with the sleep... I can't remember the last time I fully slept without waking up every hour or so because of pain since this nightmare began, this is unfortunately just a short list of what's going on without getting into the more personal symptoms
Thank you for taking the time to read if you did, I can't sleep currently and after a few years of dealing with whatever is going on I needed to vent with people who might just get it and understand the actual physical pain. I feel like I'm getting no where with doctors, that perhaps they actually have no clue what is going on and just want to hide away from people wanting to prod me.
Hope everyone's having a better night than I
