I'm a 17 year old female. Recently I was diagnosed with joint hypermobility syndrome which they think has been affecting me since I was younger.
They gave me 30/500 zapain and sent me on my way.
When I was a lot younger I had ribcage problems which I used to call "sensitive" ribs I seen the hospital for. Because I couldn't lie on my stomach as it hurts my ribs and when pushed in it is really sore. They never found a diagnoses for this.
Recently in the last few months I also seen a doctor because I had really bad pelvic problems it would hurt to sit down and push down. I also couldn't have sex because the pain was that bad. I had an internal vaginal exam and I was literally crying with the pain and she said everything looked normal. Which I was convinced wasn't.
I have been having tingling sensations in my left forearm down to my last 2 fingers which can last all night. I have pain in my back, upper and lower around the shoulder areas, also under my ribcage hurts a lot I am constantly leaning to the side and my bones crack what feels like my ribs. My hip burns and i feel pain down my legs. I have constant fatigue and I tested the amount of hours I may need to sleep but no matter how many hours I still feel horrible in the morning and my sleep is never refreshed.
All MRI scans are clear and doctors don't know what to do with me. People think I am a hypercondreact and it's horrible I can't go a full day without being in pain.
Me and my boyfriend have been looking into different things and found this website. We were looking into fibro and the tender points which clicked with him he said do you remember the little points on your arms neck and hips that are really painful.
We looked into the tender point thing and he applied pressure to the places were it said to and most of the areas I found really painful.
I don't think I just have jhs, should I speak to the doctor about looking into fibromyalgia?
What should I do??? Any advice would be appreciated, can't stand all of this pain. Cocodamol isn't helping and I take amitryptlinr at night time which keeps me sleeping.
