Hi to all who helped me in past months and year with support on various symptoms and ill health.
Quix, if you remember, I was the one with the stomach ordeal in 2006 - appendectomy and no appendix found - then I went through the depression in 2007 and the Neurologist came up with a diagnosis of Myositis. Well as of this year in Feb 08, he refused to carry out the muscle biopsy and wanted me to see another Neurologist, which is the impossible - as all moneys have now depleted. I seeked help again from my GP who referred me to an Orthopaedic specialist. They carried out about 30 xrays of head/neck/pelvis/spine and hands. Findings: Stenosis and scoliosis in lumber spine and osteoarthritis in both hands. Apart from the intermittent leg/bone pain I still suffer from in the long bones (which leaves the muscles tired and painful and as if they are contracting), I had excrutiating finger pains for the first part of this year. I have been on celebrex and had cortizone injections, but still continue to suffer, especially with the bone pain. I again had a stomach attack 3 weeks ago (relived the symptoms of 2006), however, I notice an increase in bone pain. Now I am wondering if something is not building up in my bones and expelling through my stomach that causes the nausea/vomiting and diarreah. Do you think this is possible? I still have many episodes of shortness of breath, only when walking long distance or up stairways and I had a strange episode of chest pain in May this year - that really is not comparable to heartburn, which is what everyone tells me. I had another suggestion from a colleague I work with, that it could be vascular related?? I have never smoked. I am now 38 years old.
Your thoughts and guidance here would really be appreciated.
Take care all of you
