So after 2 years of medical tests after tests, I was finally handed a diagnosis. I have Fibromyalgia. It funny how the people who have been by my side supporting me throughout the process are suddenly reacting strangely to the diagnosis.
“How can they be certain if there are no tests?” Because I have every single symptom of the illness and I have taken every imaginable medical test imaginable over the last 2 years.
“That’s just what doctors say when they don’t know what’s wrong. There’s nothing really wrong with you.” Thanks for dismissing the constant pain, the inflammation, the bruising, the brain fog, etc. I have to speak slowly and at times I cannot even remember the last sentence I said. You know this. You’ve witnessed it. Why do you suddenly doubt it?
“So that means they were wrong about Graves’ Disease?” No. I have both. Actually, I have Arthrose on the left knee and the back column, Asthma, Dyslexia, Fibromyalgia, Graves’ Disease and Sleep Apnea. They also want me to take the test for Celiac Disease because my vitamin D is low, even if I’m prescribed the double amount than the usual.
