Feeling like Im crazy--My Pain IS real!
Having a really hard time with doctors giving me ridiculous advice or not believing my pain at all. Telling me that I just need to stretch more and build up strength gradually so I dont get hurt. I feel like no matter how hard I try they don't take my pain seriously.
I wish they would listen or at least refer me to a different doctor who would take my pain and other symptoms as legitimate. I am sure there is more that could be done to help me if doctors would just diagnose my issues so they could be treated. They won't even consider anything else beyond the generic term of "chronic pain" which is pretty useless in terms of treatment and diagnosis.
I have tons of symptoms, they must mean something: pain all over my body both muscles and joints, shooting zaps or aching pains down my legs or arms, headaches and migraines, dizziness, nausea, brain fog/confusion, hypersensitivity to lights/sound/touch/temperature, dry/burning eyes, balance problems, weakness and tingling in hands, heavy sensation in arms, fatigue, jaw pain/stiffness/clicking, breathing problems, bruise like pain when scratching or touching my skin, burning and itching sensations and many other varieties of these symptoms.
There must be something they can do/diagnose? I am in so much pain I cant function and their only reponse is to try more pills (which i dont want unless I have a diagnosis so that I know the treatment is appropriate) or to stretch and exercise. Its like going in circles and they wont give me any other help or answers.
Someone help me!
