I am 23 years old, female
Up until 8 weeks ago I was completely fine.
I got tonsillitis (severely) 8 weeks ago and that’s seems to be what has kicked this all off. Ever since I have had severe body aches that nothing is touching, I either sleep all the time or can’t sleep at all. And now getting chronic headaches that takes hours to go away. The doctors put it down to ‘Post Viral Fatigue’ but as of the other day has now referred me to a Rhuematologist as he thinks it could be Fibromyalgia.
2 weeks ago I developed tonsillitis again and then the next day woke up with shingles!
I am really just looking for advice as I really don’t know what to expect from my referral and just looking for advice on what can help the pain and sleeping issues.
I am currently on Amitriptyline. I did stop this and go on to Pregablin but it made my head go really weird (like zapping) so doctors put me back on amitriptyline.
