Hello and welcome to you my friend.You just keep strong and we will try and help you deal with doctors and hep you on what to say...may take time....but at the end hopefully you will get the help you need.
For me....i am still undiagnosed.
2004 went to Tunisia 3 times.I used to travel the world,very active,never ill,then bang.Got sick twice then flue on the last trip.
Doctors said id had a nervous breakdown.No treatment.
Doctors said i was depressed.....put on anti depress which made me ill.
Doctors thinks its M.E Chronic fatigue syndrome so i do the f.i.n.e trials.
2005-2007 a bit of a blur as i became so ill hair loss,depressed,panic attacks. and memory loss..friends left me...felt so alone.
Dec 2007...had tried to keep working but insomnia set in bad,exhausted,feel sick,body hurt so bad....felt noone believed me and work was giving me more n more to do and they treated me with a bad attitude.
Dec 6 2007- stopped working.
Feb 2007 - June 2009_ Just stayed in the house too afraid to leave.Dont sleep that often,friends dont bother much with me.Had lock jaw lost a tooth and cracked a few.Last month had a jaw op and injections in the jaw joints.Been told i have to loose 2 more good teeth to ease my pain. Now they have said twice i have Lupus and then NO when the bloods come back so they say its chronic fatigue syndrome again.Swelled up 2 weeks ago,legs like tree trunks,face like a false mask,elbows huge..oh the fun.2 days ago diagnosed with Fibromyalgia...taken 2 pills and now deflating at last.Slowly but im getting there.
Doctors have treated me with contempt and ignorance....i hid away and stopped seeing anyone.Members here helped me gain my confidence...i fought back.Changed my doctor and he seems a bit better.
You find out who your freinds are when you get sick...so dont worry....good riddence if it happens....you then find 'true' friends who care aboutt YOU!!
You keep fighting...and we''ll try to help ya.Im 39 years old in a 90 year olds body xxxxxxx
