    I'm new here!

    Hi, my name is LadyTiriki. I’m new to The Mighty and look forward to sharing my story.




    #ADHD . I have been diagnosed with fibromialgia costochondritis , peripheral neuropathy ,thyroid nodules (checking now for cancer ) Hashimoto's Thyroiditis,, ADHD,. I have pain everywhere, The pain from the neuropathy is constant and at times excruciating. Because of this and loss of balance it is hard to walk ,even with my cane .I'm the wife of a disabled veteran, also his official (according to the Veterans Administration) caretaker and fiduciary The constant fatigue,brain fog and pain are making it very difficult to care for my husband and do my cooking and household chores . . Both my husband and my adult children ( two of whom live with us ) cannot understand how sick feel and are always upset at me because don't do what need to do.They think I'm lazy and refuse to help me . I am not shy or unable to speak for myself but 'm at a loss of how to make my family understand and how to change this dynamics.

    But at least it’s a diagnosis ^_^ ❤️

    Ever had people say this to you after years of ambiguity? I’ve had all these symptoms with normal test/lab results and doctors telling me I’m depressed as a result (apparently ignoring that I have CRPS), and then wow! turns out I have thyroid nodules too. Yeah it’s something of a new diagnosis, but I haven’t been to an endocrinologist for them yet.

    I’m allowed to be scared and stressed about the implications of this, and the prospects of biopsy and surgery. 20 years ago I woke up during surgery on my neck. I remember it clearly and boy does it give me anxiety to think of doctors fooling around there. But at least it’s something different than another normal test result.

    I feel like I have a lot of symptoms that get their own separate diagnosis and I’m wondering if maybe they are linked ? ... I’m going to list all my issues/Diagnoses (prepare yourself, people tend to look at me sideways whenever I actually lis them all😐) IBD: Ulcerative Colitis, precancerous colon polyps, Mild Gastroparesis, GERD, Endometriosis, gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance, benign thyroid nodules, mild anemia, clinical generalized anxiety disorder with moderate depression (manic episodes) chronic sinus infections, nose ulcers.
    ....should I get tested for lupus ?
