I need help/a bit of a rant

So, Ive been really unwell the last couple of weeks and tonight I have reached my breaking point. Im a crying mess and I just cant stop.
I have fibromyalgia and m.e and was diagnosed with “suspected” low blood pressure a few months ago. But now Im 100% sure I have POTS. Ive had symptoms on and off for years and they seem to come in flare ups and right now Im having a bad flare up. I have every single POTS symptom and its making everyday life really really miserable. Ive barely left the house since Christmas and when I have Ive felt really unwell the entire time. Another issue I have is social anxiety from being ill. Im always really anxious about fainting or vomiting in public so I cant do anything alone and just when I thought Id gotten over that and I started going out more *boom* I faint in front of a stranger and all of my anxiety is back. Im well aware that things could be so much worse and I know theres so many of you on here suffering more than I am but at this point Im done. Im so over being ill. I want to be a normal 25 year old woman and finally enjoy my life for the first time but my body keeps resisting and having more issues.
I plan on calling my gp with my mother (for moral support) first thing on monday morning to push for a tilt test and other test for POTS because I need to get to the bottom of this ASAP.
If any of you can give me some advice that would be really appreciated. I know you all are so lovely on here. Xx #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome #Fibromyalgia #MyalgicEncephalomyelitis

Quick question about a reccuring dream

For the last year or 2 I've been having dreams where I'm floating and I can't get my feet back on the groud. But it's my legs floating up behind me which makes me stuck floating on my stomach. It's so bizarre and I hope I explained it well.
Does anyone know why I'm getting this dream? I've done some research but a lot of the answers are mixed. #dreams #MyalgicEncephalomyelitis .

Just a quick question

Does anyone else get physically ill whenever they get upset or angry? Everytime I have an argument or disagreement with family or have any kind of upset, I instantly start feeling ill. My fatigue gets worse and I get pain all over my body.
I just had an argument with a sister and now I'm lying in bed feeling like I have the flu. I hate m.e and fibromyalgia!
