Hi, I'm new to this so hello to all. I've been suffering with confusing symptoms since this January. I've been undergoing test after test to confirm a diagnosis. Not only do I suffer from fatigue but the most hardest symptom I deal with is my upper chest pain that also can effect my breathing.
After all these months my life has completely changed. My diet is different and the way I live my life has had to change so I'm able to deal with this. Everyday is different and the pain can come and go on different levels.
I can say now after so many months and tests and my own research that my doctor has said that I have fibromyalgia. I also know that I have costroconditis.
My anxiety was so bad in the beginning as I was scared not knowing what was going on with me, but now I don't feed into my symptoms and I understand my symptoms now. My sleep is also heaps better with the occasional not so good night.
I do believe that diet and lifestyle does help heaps.
I don't take any medication and an helping myself naturally. My pain threshold has improved going through this but I do sometimes have to take panadol that takes the edge off.
To all out there please look after yourselves the best you can through diet and minimise your stress. It does help
