I've been ill for three months, I've had to give up my job, drs are struggling to diagnose me.
I'm very confused as my symptoms are cyclical and some seem like peri but others just don't add up.
At or near the start of my period I get very ill, very weak, shaky and nauseous feeling. But I also have this thing going on with my neck - the first month it happened I couldn't sit down without feeling a strange neck pain, dizziness, tingling in my shoulder and back.
I also notice that on bad days, moving my arms triggers nauseous yuk feelings.
Then each cycle I start to recover and feel less shaky and nauseous and the neck and back thing feels more of a conventional neck issue - my physiotherapist said it was minor trapped nerves.
But where I'm confused is why this all gets so much worse at the start of my cycle. And if it is just trapped nerves why do I get lots of other symptoms too - weak, shaky, loss of appetite, need loo all the time, buzzing and twitching, heavy legs, high anxiety bursts / adrenaline rushes, feel hot in the night, broken sleep.
I'm going round in circles, I decide it's peri then think that the way I feel ill when I move my arms can't possibly be peri, its too obscure.
Then I decide it's all caused by the trapped nerves but that leaves all of the other symptoms unexplained and doesn't explain the cycle of worse then recovering that follows my menstrual cycle.
Anyone got any idea what's going on with me?
