Hi everyone. I have written this as I feel you guys are the only people who truly know how I feel. I have been ill for nearly 7 months, and still have no real answers. It all started when I had bacterial pneumonia in May and I was quite ill and in hospital for 4 days. Afterwards I was exhausted for a couple of weeks. Then the dreaded symptoms started. Internal tremors, muscle twitches, couldn't gain weight (lost 2 stone), sinus pressure, fatigue, shooting pains in arms and legs, achey arms and legs, pins and needles, weird vision, anxiety, aching sore neck and shoulders. I have had lots of blood work done. My kidney function has been a bit low since the pneumonia, I had a weak positive Rheumatoid Factor, and I have recently had a positive result for smooth muscle antibodies but my Dr said he isn't worried as my liver function is fine. My Dr is very good and sympathetic and says he wants to carry on seeing me. I'm due to see him next week. I felt like I was getting better a few weeks ago but this week I feel rubbish again. The aches in my arms back legs and neck being the worst symptoms. Had thyroid tests which were all fine. I also have 2 bulging discs in lower back, ddd, and narrowing of the spinal canal. I wonder how much of all this is down to my back. Sorry for the long essay but I'm so frustrated and sick of feeling like this. I know many of you are going through similar things. Can anyone please help? Thankyou, Faye xx
