Hello, my name is Paula and I am 26 years old. I have been suffering from chronic pain since the age of 18. When it started it felt like more muscle pain in the neck however as the years have gone by it has spread all over my neck and upper back. In the last few years I have started to get the same pain in my jaw and fingers. I am constantly tired and drained and the pain makes me physically sick. I also have severe crunching in my bones when I move.
I have been to physiotherapists, chiropractors and I have also been seen by a rhematologist who said I was fine and it may just be hyper mobility. I have been told I have slight scoliosis however I believe there is more to it.
I have had an mri scan which showed wear and tear of the back and I had basic blood tests done which were normal but showed my vitamin d was a little low. I go to the doctors once a month for this and I get no help and it is affecting my mental state as I feel so unwell everyday.
i have also been prescribed many drugs for this and nothing helps my pain at all, they only make me feel even more like a zombie. I believe from what I have read about fibromyalgia that it is possibly what I have but it is so difficult to be taken serious by any doctor.
Some advice and thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for ranting I am just very fed up now.
Thanks everyone xxx
