Hi! I'm 23 from Melbourne, Australia.
I am currently going through diagnosis for fibromyalgia. I have been going through the ringer trying to balance being my partners career, working full time, studying part time and my doctor telling me that there was nothing he could do because he couldn't see anything wrong.
I have had issues here and there followed with exploritry surgery trying to find what my abdominal pain was caused from and eventually discovered I had interstitial cystitis. I also had my gallbladder and appendix removed in this time.
The last 6 months I have felt like my body was shutting down on me, I was taking so much time of work (still am) and then when I would be at work they could tell i was in pain and would offer me the next day off.
I have taken up inferred hot yoga, completely changed my diet and experimenting with medication.
I suffer from morning to midday stiffness, muscle fatigue, pins and needles, numbness, sleep apnea, night terrors (I have ptsd) migraines, depression, anxiety, sharp pains to constant dull aches.
All started with what I thought was "period pain" and then my left knee. Felt like there was something painful in it and it has never gone away sense.
I would really love to hear what others have tried or what works for them!
So far whilst trying everything, I still don't see a difference and would love to see if I can try something different that works for someone else in hopes it will work for me😊
Or even just having someone whom understands, sometimes the depression and the loneliness is what makes it all that much harder.
You can lean on me if needed because listening always helps, and when I don't have what they are putting down to "fibro fog" I'm quite the sensei, mr. Miahgi, Buddha, wise folk, or what ever you would like to call me. 😊
