Hi, I'm 29 years old and female
About 12 days ago I started feeling run down, really tired, no cold or flue symptoms or anything just worn out. Anyway two days after that I woke up with an excruciating headache and pain around my upper back, neck and rib area, it felt like I'd done a massive gym session but I had done very little for feeling so tierd. Two days later the pain was getting worse so I went to my gp. She done some blood and urine tests and a test to see if I had a clot but apart from a mild temp and slightly raised heart rate and showing signs fighting infection in pee test All was fine. She said I probably had a virus to go home and rest, as the next few days went past the pain was getting worse, was agony to lay down so I barley slept. Anyway 6 days after first feeling unwell I had a numb feeling in my right side rib area and the pain was much worse I ended up in a&e and after many hours and many tests they sent me home not finding anything wrong, every day since then iv been getting worse, I'm totally numb from inbotween My sholder blades all the way down my right side to my foot, walking is becoming more difficult as is bending, I had to sit on the floor to wriggle into my trousers as I couldn't lift my leg. I still find laying down very uncomfortable. Iv since been back to the doctors and she gave me some naproxin and pregabalin that help with the pain and has refered me for an urgent mri but it's been 3 days and I'm still waiting, I'm worried, I can't relax because of the pain, I can't work, I'm very emotional and keep crying because of the lack of sleep. I really don't know what to do and was wondering if anyone had similar symptoms and knew what was going on.
