Fibromyalgia-Hashimotos-Arthritis - Only 27 yrs & desperate
0 Replies
mnicole - April 3

I first want to say I feel sadness for anyone who suffers daily. I was very active; not to mention working as a teenager while in school. I started developing health issues around the age 18. At 19 I was diagnosed with Hashimotos. Two years ago; when I was 25 they removed it. I still struggle with symptoms. I was in a car accident around 2012 where I suffered a neck spinal injury I did not truly feel the effects until just over a year ago. Aside from that I started to notice severe head aches, not your typical headaches...severe pressure and pain. Eventually I was just fatigued all the time, with no desire to go anywhere. I started getting immense amounts of pain all over my body. At the end of 2016 they diagnosed me with arthritis and fibromyalgia. I have tried gluten free diets, I tried exercising, and nothing helps. No medicine has helped either. They have tried to treat me with depression medication. I live in Florida and I never want to go outside, (which hurts mentally because being outdoors is where im happy) but, the weather is too humid. People believe I am just lazy; when I feel i try to do everything I can to get out of bed and do what I need to do daily. Sometimes the pain is just too much. I have gone as far as to decide I need to move further north. I can only hope this will somewhat help. If I could have 3 good days a week, or even just less pain that would be enough for me. I feel sometimes that I am wasting my life; I have so many aspirations and it's been hard to come to terms that I will not be able to do some of them. Some days I just feel miserable and I wish I could find something to help. So I can just enjoy things; it is difficult to accept because others; including family believe I can, "just push through". Knowing others suffer in the same way does make me feel like I am just misunderstood by most. Any advice I can get I will take! And I am sorry for anyone who suffers from any of these things...I wouldn't wish it upon anyone. I am now turning 28 and just wonder if I can somehow find a way to do something so that I can enjoy the days.
