Quoting ♡Sarah♡ + 2:" Oh ok, I was worried about maybe a metabolic disorder. I had one that my previous specialists didnt catch but my new endocrinologist did."
That was my thought too. Guess it isn't. I did go to a new Dr because my last one kept telling me to "work out more". I nearly smacked him. He and his wife are super thin. Thin like they could eat 50 doughnuts daily and not gain a lb. They have super fast metabolisims. I also told him about all the pain I was in. I was still having lung pain from my lung surgery nearly a year later. Sneezing was "BRUTAL". His answer was to put me on anti-depressants. He thought I had some PTSD and PPD (I went thru alot that summer and it did mess me up). He said that being on celexa would change the brain chemestry and I would "feel better". Well, when that didn't work he put me on effexor. That was interesting. I was seriously climbing the walls. It gave me drug seeking tendencies. I quit smoking 5 years ago and haven't wanted it since. Guess who was smoking within being on it for 3 weeks. I smoked a pack a day! I didn't even smoke that much when I was a fulltime smoker. Not to mention that I don't smoke in my home or infront of my children. That should say something about the chain smoking. I would have killed for a joint and really wanted to be drunk. Thankfully, I was smart enough to seek a different Doc and get things worked out. I am off the effexor and somewhat back to normal. Today I was told that the pain I keep describing aside from the left lung is most likely fibromyalgia. He did a quick assesment after actually listening to me and told me after I am off the Depo, he will evaluate me again and possibly send me off to a rhumotologist for a better and more clear diagnosis. I have been complaining about this pain LONG before I got pregnant with my son and went on Depo to the last Dr. Really pisses me off when I think about how much better my quality of life could be with the proper diagnosis and such. I was blood transfusion dependent for 2 years before they finally decided to remove my spleen.
UGH! I am fed up with health issues. I just want one thing to work! lol
My thought is that if I do have fibromyalgia, dropping this extra weight will certainly help the symptoms. I noticed that my "larger" friends who have it tend to complain more. I am too young to have this much pain and be this damn sick all the time. If I feel this way at 34, imagine at 50! I will be nursing home bound. lol
