Good morning ladies, I wanted share some information. So I like most of you have been dealing with on and off symptoms that keep popping up. I have had digestive issues, headaches, bladder issues, night sweats, fatigue, cramps, etc....I have also dealt with back pain since I had my first child over 15 years ago. Over the last three years I have undergone so many tests, heart tests, ultra sounds, xrays, urine tests, pap tests....you name it. I have noticed over the last year that I am now getting more and more neck pain, shoulder pain, rib pain, and over all muscle pain anywhere from hips, to legs. I just ignored it because I felt they were just going to say it's stress or anxiety which is what I have been told in the past. I went to my doctor the other day as the pain in my right side has been on going for close to three weeks. She feels it is a pulled muscle, but the thing is I don't know what I did, she says often times this can happen with a pulled muscle you don't feel it happening at the time. Any ways I asked if she could check for arthritis and anything else that can cause pain, as I have not been able to work at my business lately. We are still waiting on one more test which is an autoimmune, but my blood test has come back with high inflammation. All this time I started believing it was all in my head because I was starting to feel that way, but clearly the blood test shows differently. My point is keep searching, don't assume its perimenopause, don't settle for stress and anxiety. I am going to keep searching for the cause of inflammation because I feel I can't be living with a chronic pulled muscle. At my age the inflammation should not be that high. I would suggest all of you that have chronic body pain to be checked for inflammation in the body.
