For the past year and a half I have been in a lot of pain and it seems to be spreading to more and more locations. My doctor has NO idea whats wrong with me, he has suggested Fibromyalgia.
I have a really hard time going to sleep and staying asleep and I have to switch positions several times in the night because it makes my body hurt every way I lay if I lay in the position for too long. When I wake up in the morning I feel stiff and achy.. The worst area is the joint near my armpit/shoulder/chest area. It feels sore pretty often and it definitely hurts after laying on either side for too long. I also have pain in my hips that will radiate down to my legs and sometimes to me knees. That pain isn't as often as the shoulder pain though. When I wake up I feel very groggy and stiff but after a few hours the pain starts to subside and its mostly not noticeable until the evening again. Like right now I'm having pain in my left shoulder blade (on my back obviously lol) that happens only sometimes. My pain definitely gets worse when im stressed or anxious.
I just dont know what this is and its frustrating, im tired of being in pain all of the time!! I used to feel extremely tired everyday from my lack of quality sleep but ive been taking a very large dose of B12 and that has been helping tremendously with the fatigue but not the pain.
Is my doctor right?? Is it Fibro?? He said there really isnt anything I can do, he says mine sounds mild and doesn't recommend lyrica.
