Hello all. First I must thank many of you for your stories... I am reading them every day , sometimes 2 times a day to get me through these difficult times. I started this cycle of chronic pain last summer with dizziness and then panic attacks which I assumed was medication . I went to doctors and had blood done , started to take folate acid as this was a bit low and stopped some reflux medication that I thought was causing panic. In November this rib pain started and so I got xray, mri , endoscopy, bloods again. Nothing except possible rib fracture but they thought it was artifactual as no trauma had occurred and it wasn't obvious at all. So this caused me more stress. Pain started to move into face , numb , burning. I stopped working as it was getting too much. Now its more nerve pain, burning back and front ribs, face pain which moves around face and often in noes , arms and hands. Its been so painful. I went to ER once too quite recently and they said heart and lungs , rib ok and bloods ok . My heart was racing but it eventually went down. I also had a brain MRI which I am waiting for results... and had a abdominal scan all clear . I have a history of post viral fatigue age 15 and fibromyalgia quite recently in my late 30s. I have never felt this bad , never had to stop working due to symptoms. The nerve pain is constant but goes up and down in severity and areA and moves around my face and arms and back very quickly it it insane. I definitely have health anxiety. I always think the worst and also have a tendanxy to catastrophy especially about the safety of people. I have alot of the TMS traits. I have also spent the last 7 month Googling everything that sounded like what I feel and that has created much more anxiety. The last 3 weeks I have been working really hard at not talking about how I feel in a negative way, barely discussing with anybody, . I have been jornalllubg , walking , meditation and I just feel worse. The face pain got worse a few nights and then faded. This morning the ribs woke me up at 3am and 6am and I had to get up and find a way to relax the nerve and crawling sensation . I often feel my nervous system shaking internally. I know I am at the start of my journey. I am following the plan on here too . Anyway I know I can't change a lifetime of panic in 3 weeks but it feels worse and overwhelming. Thanks for listening xx Any advice would be much appreciated.
