please help need to know whats wrong with me

Hello everyone

Can anybody help me to clarify what is wrong with me, and give me some advice as I am thinking of going to see my doctor about this but need some thoughts from you guys to help me explain to him.

For the past 10 years or more I have suffered from extreme tiredness, fatigue and just have no energy to do anything. I put this down to becoming a mother to my son who is now 11 years old. I suffered post natal depression and this never really lifted and I now take a low dose SSRI as I feel low all the time. For the past few years I can no longer tollerate excersize as I feel too weak to do it, and when I do I feel like I have no energy to do anything else for a while. Walking the dog is just about copable. I work full time stood up in a pharmacy, by the end of the day everything hurts, my whole body aches and on an evening my legs twitch, are restless and in pain. Doing DIY made me ache for days. Every morning just about I feel like my whole body aches and is stiff. My legs take a while to get going and my hands feel stiff and achey. I have bowel problerms which are being looked at right now by the hospital. I have lots of headaches and neck pain whick I take painkillers for....not everyday so I know its nothing major...just tension. I forget everything, loose things (even pharmacy keys) and i do sillt things like throw important things away. I can not study for my job and feel stupid as if I am just dumb of something.

Please help, is this just stress or more.

I feel like I am always in pain constantly, tired all the time and in a world of my own.

Regards

Mandy x

Re: please help need to know whats wrong with me

Have you been to a doctor about this? Had any tests done? what have they said about your bowel problems and what sort of problems are they?

I'd get your thyroid checked.....your symptoms sound thyroid related

Re: please help need to know whats wrong with me

Hello Mandy.
I'm really sorry for all the pain you are going through.

Without going back to your comment, did you mention Chronic Fatique? If so, you could certainly have that but I'm also thinking about fibromyalgia.
have you been tested for that? the only way for testing for a doctor is asking questions i.e. Fatique, irritable bowel, forgetfulness, pressure points(shoulders, hips, thighs...
Fibro effects the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Restless legs can be a symptom as well as sleep problems.

Do let me know your thoughts.

Good to hear that. At least you have the beginning of an answer. Rhumatologists are great at diagnosing.

Good luck!
