I have been dealing with chronic pain for at least 5 years. First in my back of which I was prescribed steroid injections. Then in both arms as chronic tendonitis. I received a number of injections for that and ended up having surgery on the left arm last march. It didn't make it any better other that it took away the constant pain and aching. I still have pain on use. I have Mitral Valve Prolapse which was diagnosed when I was 21. I have ulcerative proctitis, raynauds syndrome, plantar faciitis, spondylolysis and other things I can't think of now. I had viral menengitis 8 years ago and from that I have hearing loss, ringing in my ears and I don't think I ever recovered my ability to concentrate well. I have fatigue often. Sometimes to the point that I just cannot function. If I have one good day where I am able to accomplish a lot at home, I will have 3 or 4 days just recovering from it. My OT, after seeing that I haven't fully recovered from the surgery and coupled with all my other issues, suggested I might have fibromyalgia amd even put it in her report to the Orthopedist but he ignored it. The latest issue is that i had a flu shot nearly 4 weeks ago and that shoulder has been in constant pain since. My NP put me on steroids for 5 days and that did make it better but after stopping them the pain came right back. She has sent me for an xray and I am waiting to hear the results. I suspect they will find nothing. I am looking for advice on what to do next. Does this sound like Fibromyalgia or something else? Thanks in advance for any advice.
