Thanks to the support here I spent last week at a relatively close university having a case study done on me. I had posted a few weeks ago that I had a doctor that really wanted to have me sent to a university to have this done and I was hesitating and the support here really helped me to go ahead.
I spent most of this week having all the xray's, mri's, ct's and so much blood work that I believe they have a happy vampire on staff somewhere.
Well, I now have an entire medical university hospital stumped. Actually, fibromyalgia was brought up again. I was told I had this way before it was considered a real medical condition and I know plently of people that have it but I also feel this is a name for a condition when they don't know what is really going on. But, the main topic of concern was Chronic Fatigue. I was told after I had cancer I had CFS because the stress of the cancer left me sleepless. I never found a way to truly rest again. The doctors seem to think that I suffer from extreme amounts of pain because of this. I have a large amount of muscle mass for a women. I am 5'10" and weight 205 lbs. That is a lot of weight but I only wear a size 10 jean. They said that my bone, muscle and organ tissue accounts for about 170lbs of my weight. I am very healthy and use to be athletic. They think the lack of sleep is causing my muscles to remain in a contracted state and they never have enough time to rest so they put strain on my joints and disc areas and thats the reason for the wear and tear at my age.
Well, if they are right I just need to sleep! I have taken about every sleep aid out there. Tried sound machines, armotherapies and love my sleep number bed. They are now trying me on more sleep aids and said they don't care how drousy they make me right now. I wasn't aware how bad lack of sleep could be on the heart. My heart is fine but I don't want to risk it.
I thought I would let ya'll know and thanks everyone again for pushing me into this direction. Sometimes we just need to hear the words from others that will tell you what they really think.
