I am looking for some ideas as GP lovely sympathetic but says beyond her . Refererd to rheumatologist who seems blinkered.
I spent last week doing a good impression of someone with taurets, i got a sharp pain and screemed and then found that it helped mentally so subconsciously i must of decided to scream when it really hurt and i feel happier this week and I have stopped screaming. Although it still hurts.
I have had pains in my hands and in my legs for several years but nothing severe just ache for no reason and lots of pins and needles. I thought nothing of the pins and needles untill recently.
However just over a year ago after building up the pain became severe , literally my arms were making my eyes water.
It was like a deep muscle pain right into the bone it felt like my bones were ice cold and i had been hit with a hammer. It hurts to type myhands struggle to hit the keys.
In a few weeks i had these p[ains sometimes lasting minutes sometimes hours all over my body. the slightest breeze caused my body to contract and deform and feel severe pain. Even a fan on low in the summer would be agony, so winter is very nasty.
apart from the deep pains i have a sensitivity an empty shopping basket on my wrist after 20 or 30 seconds fels like a bang from a hammer, I cant hold knives they hurt my palm and i also spasm and just missed my foot with a sharp cooks knife.
I get pains also on the left of my face which are soothed by covering with a soft cushion I have.these last hours.
I have had severe pains in my rib cage but not for about six months these were like being crushed.
I often get wrong words like washing machine for dryer beef for pork etc i know the right oneand cant get it out.
I was slightly better in the summer but the cold started and I am a mess again , spending much of my days wrapped in a cardigan heating on full with a quilt over me so no draft can hit me and hurt. typing this is wipping me out but i just want to know if anyone has any ideas
i am on lots useless of pain pills and gabapentine which has almost stopped pins and needles but no other effect
The rheumatologist seems interested in inflamation only but has said it may be some sort of nerve hypersensitivity but no more than that.
Any ideas please help me
