Default 19 with Chronic Pain and Fatigue

Hello people !
So recently I have had some really bad symptoms much that describe FM. So I started a new job in April and I was very content for a good month till
I noticed some "invisible pain" on my upper back. It felt prickling and I decided to continue to ignore it. After a hellish 3 months with it I noticed that this pain was not normal and I had to work through with it and just take normal advil when it was in actuality getting worst I had no insurance and I couldnt do anything about it. So I ended up quitting my job because of the pain in July and I basically lied in bed feeling sick for a months now. My family doesnt really understand the pain and fatigue feeling. I went to urgent care a couple of times due to anxiety and I ended driving to the hospital 4 am n wasting money just to get a shot that numbs the pain. Doctors and family members just think its anxiety and my depression because "I look normal". Ive had blood tests but and they came back fine. I dont really know what to do anymore. My symptoms are getting worst. I have a constant bad headache, my upper teeth feel numb and sensitive, half my the right side of my body is numb and weak, my back - neck - shoulder are in alot of pain and Ive been getting more and more fatigued, there feels like theres bugs under my face crawling, I have trouble concentrating and trying to remember things, the ringing in my ear gets louder, it feels like I have a sinus infection. I know alot of sympotms -.- I tried self massaging my TRP till I actually get some better treatment but it doesn't seem to work . Ive basically been lying bed to and worrying whether my symptoms wil get worst and sooner than later I might develop nerve damage or something scary (I have terrible anxiety). I have tried excercisig and tried doing normal around the house chores but when I do and lay back down I just start feeling unbearable pain again. I have a Doctor's appointment tomorrow with my primary care physician and Im afraid hes just going to give medication that might not help. Hopefully I can get a referral to rheumatologist or someone that actually deals with chronic pain and fatigue.


Anyways thanks for reading my post and if you guys have similar symptoms or anything in common feel free to reply

Hi there! Not trying to make you feel bad or anything, but next time could you please split your post in paragraphs? It's easier to read that way. Just a piece of advice.

As for your ailments. Well, all if you have insurance already or enough money to see a doctor, then I truly recommend you to see a neurologist fast. The symptoms you described, specially the fact one side of your body is numb indicates you need to see a neurologist fast. Get a MRI done! I think you need to get your brain checked, if possible get a column MRI. You definitely need to see a neurologist.

Best of luck! Please keep us posted.

Hay
I saw my pcp today. Surpisingly enough he believes in Fibromyalgia and I got an instant refereral to see a rheumatologist. I discussed with him my symptoms and still believes it is anxiety and depression that cause most of my pain and I have had those since I was a child however I argued that Fibromyalgia is causing me to have those painful symptoms and not me. I was only prescribed 40 mg of Prozac and he said it should be fine which I highly doubt. I felt like discussing my problems but he seemed so rushed and said just take prozac and call psychiatrist and boom your appointments done. It is bad enough I have to drive over there and (I haven driven weeks due to FM) just to get a short appointment like im just another customer. My referrals coming in a week so hopefully I can get some proper help with my FM.

May not be fibromyalgia. Have you been diagnosed? You are only 19 years old ?

As a survivor of SSRI antidepressants, Prozac would not be in my system ever again.
