Hi everyone......my name is Lisa. I am 39, and I have been having a myriad of symptoms I have yet to get a diagnosis for....I did however, get diagnosed with bursitis in my right hip in Oct of 2013. I got a shot and have been fine up until about 3 weeks ago. The burning & stinging have returned with a vengeance but this time in my left hip also but not near as severe.....the pain is so bad I am having trouble stepping in and out of pants when I get dressed, walking up & down stairs & even driving at times.
My other symptoms include.....muscle weakness, fatigue....I can sleep 9 to 10 hrs at night and wake up the next morning and be fighting a nap by 11 AM. I have no energy. I am losing my hair in VERY large clumps!!! It comes out when I shower and clogs up the drain so bad. this has been going on for a couple years now.
I also have developed some sort of "rash" on my chest. It looks as though I have gotten a sunburn but I can assure you we are in the dead of winter here and I have not been tanning or anything! It does not itch or burn or anything.
I should mention that I am Bipolar....I take Abilify, Zoloft, Topamax (& Klonopin PRN) I have been on this regimen for a few years now. Also of notable mention.....my Mother has Lupus.
So sorry this post is so long....thanks to whomever reads it and replies!!!
