I thought I’d do a blog post today about something that really affects my quality of life & I feel it needs more awareness- Fibromyalgia.
I’ve been diagnosed with this for about 5 months now but have had problems for 3 and a half years or so. I’m currently undergoing testing for Lupus. I have the Lupus antibodies meaning I have something called anti-phospholipid syndrome (also known as Hughes Syndrome). It means I have sticky blood and am at a high risk of developing blood clots and strokes.
But back to the Fibromyalgia as that’s what this blog is about. I’m having a rubbish day with it today so just thought id share how I feel with you.
I hurt all over today especially my left ankle and right elbow.I’m also suffering with chronic fatigue.
My days consist of regular medications including 2 different pain killers and tablets that help nerve pain.
For me I have Fibromyalgia severe enough that I need to be refered to a specialist London clinic by my rheumatologist.
I have a wide range of symptoms caused through this horrible illness. From losing my hair to the chronic pain to the chronic fatigue and so on.
I just wanted to explain a bit about how this makes me feel.
Hope your all well.
