I recently went through a personal issue where i went through a great deal of stress. I didn't really confide in anyone so carried all the stress on my own. Anyway with that stress came alot of symptoms. Ive had aches and Pains for years but nothing like i have felt recently. I had really severe shooting/burning pains in shins, chest, arms, fingers, back, neck, face and head pressue, ankles, hips you name it i had it. I went to the doctors and she put it down to anxiety because of the stress i was under. She prescribed me Propronlol 40mg but to be honest i felt no different after the first one i took, that was the only one that i felt it had done something. I then was having chest pain so i went to a&e and they gave me a ECG all came back normal. I still wasn't satisfied and the pains where still there so after many trips to my doctor she mentioned Fibro and prescribed me amatriptaline 10mg 1 at night. The Pains seemed to have calmed abit on these but not totally gone, sometimes they are strong as ever. One worrying thing im getting is tightness in back and chest almost like rib pain i get it around rib are and under my left breast mostly and i cant seem to clear my nose either and get the on come of a sore throat but doesnt actually become a sore throat so its making me think its something wrong inside my chest. I also asked for a blood test. Before getting the results i visited a&e again due to breathing issue. I'm not exactly having difficulty to breathe but more of i can't get a deep satisfying breath so i find myself yawning and deep breathing alot. But it seems to get better then come on again, in a&e i was told to stop taking propropnlol. Also i am currently trying to see if there is a link with these symptoms getting worse when i am due on my period. Anyway my blood tests came back fine although i had a vitamin b12 deficiency to which i had 1 jab a week for 3 weeks and i am due for a blood test on Monday to see if it has improved. I get irritable Bowel sometimes mostly when i eat mayonaise and such products i have mostly noticed. I had dry chapped lips for 2 months and they finally feel like they are getting better and i have a really dry nose, feels like its full but nothing there. I am also getting the results to a xray that i had on my knee 3 weeks ago but the doctor rang me and doesnt want to see me till Monday but as usual im stressing over it.
Can anyone say if this sounds like Fibro?
