[color=red:17afe925bb]My life is over before it has even begun.[/color:17afe925bb]
I have been suffering the usual symptoms of CS for about 5 years (I am only 27, female) and had to finally pay a fortune to see a private specialist to be taken seriously. He diagnosed me with CS. I only just finished 6 years of studying and recently started my new career as a solicitor but after reading your experiences I am worried sick that I am not going to be able to continue working for much longer. The pain is getting worse and worse and has reached new heights this weekend. I am constantly fighting back the tears of depression and pain at work and this is a time when I am supposed to be proving myself. Instead of working late and impressing the boss I am in the toilets trying to hide the signs of tears and running home at the earliest opportunity to lay down in a dark room.
Does anyone suffer from chest pain - a tender bruised feeling over the chest and ribcage. I suffer very badly from this especially after laying on my front or leaning against something. I also recently started suffering from aches down the back of my legs and the bottom of my back. I am concerned that all the pain killers are rotting away my insides and although I am very healthy and stay as active as possible (I to walk every day- I used to run marathons) I now am worryingly suffering from bad breath and a general very strong bad smell I did a bit of research and this can be a symptom of kidney disease. I also saw on a website that CS can cause kidney disease. I cannot find any more info in this and I would appreciate if anyone had ever heard about this link.
I was once an extremely outgoing, healthy and active person who lived to be successful and the best I could be at everything. This condition has reduced me to an empty, miserable shell with very little reason to carry on. I am so glad I found this website, none of my friends or family understand and they are sick of hearing about anything to do with it.
[color=red:17afe925bb]The thought of a life of constant pain and not being able to work makes me not want to go on. I am not living, just existing. Can anyone tell me it is going to get better? [/color:17afe925bb]
