Hi everyone my name is Elaine I'm 57 years old. I have Addisons Disease.For the past 2 and a half years I have been in constant pain. I have visited my GP countless times with firstly pains in both hips. Cortisone injections in both to no effect. Pain gradually got worse and seemed to move into my lower back. I had an MRI which showed a bulging disc near the sacroiliac joint. I have been waiting for over a year for it to be injected. My appointment is now on the 29th June this year. Along with back pain I have "tennis elbow " in both elbows. They are both very tender and sore. I work as a cleaner at a school which I know is not ideal, but we all need to work right. Just lately i have started to have pains over my chest. No shortness of breath or anything like that, just under the skin if that makes sense ?does anyone else have these ? I do have the brain fog which i have in the past put down to my low thyroid. Also the gripes which come on suddenly and i have to rush to the toilet ( put these down to panic attacks ) i am finding my days very painful and hard to cope with at the moment. Does this sound like Fibromyalgia to any of you. Thanks for reading this x
