I may have lupud01/01/2012 01:01:54
I have always had poor health. Constitly getting sick with some infection or other. Then when I was seventeen I had a seizure. My back,neck.shoulders,hips,knees,ankles,and feet. I was costintly getting headaches. My doctors told me I was anemic and had thyroid issues. I have two beautiful daughters. One is almost eight and the other is almost four. About three years ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. But the symptoms have gotten a lot worse. I've started having more or should I say worsening symptom. Over the last eight months symptoms have become unbearable. Mind you almost two years ago I had four surgeries that lead to a hysterectomy inwhich the last one almost killed me because I had internal bleeding and two blood transfussions and was hospitalized for a week. Because of all that I became very depressed and had post traumatic stress disorder. The last six months have been hell. Been getting sick with everything under the sun. With fibrous you already have joint and muscle pain that can be dibilitating. But my symptoms have gotten a lot worse. Joint and muscle pail weakness is a thousand times worse. Chest pain,running into things, extremely tired more than usual, headaches worsening, slowly losing hair,lack of appitite, shortness of breath, the weakness and pain in all my joints and muscles. There are days when I cant get out of bed or even function like normal. Even days I cant even walk.I just got tested for SLE Lupus. It scares me. I feel bad that sometimes I am unable to be there for my husband and kids. My depression, pain.and anxiety are all so overwhelming. I have two weeks till I find out the results. Also did I mention my kidney issues. It sucks. But my biggest fear is not watching my girls grow up. I know that now most people can live a normal life span as long is the symptoms and effects doesn't pose the threat.I'm still very scared, but reading everyones stories seem to help, because I know I'm not alone. So thank you all for sharing your stories.
