I've been unwell for the last 10 weeks now and no nearer to getting sorted.
It started with a sore back, I went to the doctor who said it was a postural thjng and gave me some painkilers and muscle relaxants for a few days (Celebrex and Mydocalm). At the same time I had a UTI so a 5 day course of Augmentin.
As I was taking them I developed a pain in my throat which spread to a horrid jaw pain. I was checked over and they put it down to reflux from the medications.
Since then i have tried 3 PPIs from my gastro doctor, had bloods (all normal), a normal barium swallow.
They found a nodule on my thyroid which a biopsy showed was inflamed so had a steroid injection. All my thyroid levels are normal.
I can barely eat, even small amounts of the blandest food give me intense pain in my neck and jaw, I have a constant feeling of something uncomfortable in my throat. I've lost 10kg
Unless i drink gallons of water I feel like I have a UTI again - numerous test and cultures all clear.
I feel like the doctors think I'm making it up or anxious but I really feel awful! Lethargic and just generally under the weather. I am starting to feel depressed as to how this will ever be resolved.
Any advice or ideas would be hugely appreciated
