So Many Symptoms Can't Pin It Down
Hello and I am new to Healthboard. My name is Sherri and I am 53 years young. I have MS , Pancreatic Disease, Thyroid Disease , Degenerative Disc Disease and Arthritis but that is the least of my problems.
For the past 7 months or more I have had no more than 2 hours of sleep . Period. My previous physician tried me on various sleep medications and anti depressants for sleep and none of them have worked . None. I go to sleep for 1 hour and then I am wide awake . My ankles and joints and bones feel like they are being chewed and gnawed on . My body is wracked in pain . It is unbearable.
During the day it is bad but I try my best to keep myself busy so as to not have it in the forefront of my mind. but at night when I lie down and try to relax and try to sleep no go . I have had my thyroid checked and have had my synthroid med changed recently. I have no appetite at all due to all this pain. I feel nauseated all the time now from all this pain . I am getting beaten down , and feel all alone in this as drs have no clue other then to always point the finger at my MS and I know it is not that . Is there anyone out there who has these symptoms ? At times it feels like my head is going to explode from headaches from not sleeping . I am reaching out to those of you who may be experiencing the same thing ... Peace Always ....
