  • Had an emergency appendectomy in February with complications.... have lived with joint, muscle pain most of my adult life. Constant stomach problems from a young wage. IBS, constipation, nausea, loss of appetite. Feel like I am basically a failure, unable to keep a permanent job. Marriage is on verge of divorce, my family thinks it's all in my head, and that I cause this or even like to be a I. That I do it for attention, or mainly bc I am not responsible. I do not like discussing with family bc I feel misunderstood & like a. Broken record. I want to participate in life , if I don't I am criticized , if I do I pay the price. With either "pain" or comments like " well you did this "
    I feel scared, alone , but mostly hurt all over, including heart ache!!
    It's very confusing and will definitely make you think you are crazy at times.
    Was told yesterday I had fibromyalgia & vasculitis . Going to have blood test tomorrow .

    I had those same symptoms and they discovered a parathyroid tumor. Check out the symptoms for that. I was told I had fibromyalgia for years and lived in pain. Now it is gone and I feel much better. A sestamibi parathyroid scan will tell you for sure even when the parathyroid blood test comes back normal. Usually with this you have a high blood calcium as well.
