Hi, I've been having aches and pains for years now, but they've never been as intense as they are now. My doctors have ran so manu tests on me, but still have no answers. It's gotten so bad that I'm either bed bound or house bound.
About three months ago I started passing put whenever I got up and moving around. It was accompanied by extreme dizziness, sharp pains all over my body, aching in all of my joints, severe headaches, and an exhaustion that came from just walking across the room. I was hospitalized for eight days and they diagnosed me with atypical migraine and atypical seizures, even though my EEG came back completely normal. The day after I was released from the hospital, another car crashes into us and I suffered from a pretty severe concussion. After that, everything got so much worse. The pains all over my bodh were even more constant, I passed out more, there's never a moment when I'm not dizzy, and I honestly get so confused. My boyfriend's parents like to jokingly call me tipsy because when I walk, I stumble and need something to support on, I cant remember anything anymore, and sometimes when I talk I slur and slip up on all of the words. My legs and arms get sharp pains in them and twitch. My hands and feet sometimes are numb. It's the scariest feeling ever. Now my doctors have changed my diagnosis to just depression and anxiety, wanting to send me to a counselor or psychologist. I don't mind. I'll talk to one but when this all started, I wasn't depressed or anxious about much at all. I'm not happy now because I can hardly go the bathroom by myself and I had to stop working, but before I was very fine. I was working two jobs, exercising, going out with friends, and my boyfriend, whom I live with, makes really good money.
I'm nineteen, almost twenty, and I don't want to live this way but the doctors just keep saying I'm depressed. I don't feel that way. After doing some research online, I've found people with fibromyalgia that have all of the same symptoms, even the passing out and dizziness, but when I brought it up to my doctors they just brush me off. Are my symptoms really like fibromyalgia and how do I get my doctor to check for it? I can't live this way forever. I was working to save up money for school so I wouldn't have student loan debt and talking about getting married, but now my main goal for the day is not to burst into tears because I'm hurting so bad. What do I do?
