I don't know what's wrong with me. Every day, I grow increasingly anxious and afraid that one day, I will be the embodiment of the age-old joke of "waking up dead." Some background: I was involved in a motor vehicle accident in 1998. I was the driver and was hit from behind by five cars, like a stack of dominoes. When thrust forward, I, too, hit the one vehicle in front of me. I almost immediately began experiencing neck and shoulder pain, and had limited range of motion in turning to my left (which was eventually rated as a 5 % disability in my neck). I went through physical therapy, pain meds, chiropractic care, MRIs and CAT scans, only to be told that there was essentially nothing I could do but wait it out. It took six years before the pain ceased being an ever-present, everyday occurrence. I began managing by getting massages every once in a while, taking baths and sometimes taking pain meds during a flareup of the neck/shoulders/upper back. I had learned to live with that. In 2006, I gave birth to my first (and only, currently) child via C-section. It was not until after this event that I began noticing a marked change in my health. I began experiencing what seemed like panic attacks - feeling like an outsider watching my own life with such a sense of disreality and heart palpitations that I surely thought I was about to die. I went to the ER the first time it happened, and they could find nothing wrong with me. I then began having headaches which my dr. thinks are migraines but to me seem to have no normal pattern. I have noticed electric-like sensations at various points in my head, sometimes independent of and other times precipitating a headache. I had a CAT scan, which revealed only a blocked sinus. The sensations in my head continued and eventually I began feeling them in different parts of my body - knees, elbows, legs, feet ... These sensations are not particularly painful but incredibly disturbing. The best way to describe them is "electric." I have noticed a couple of other things, like muscle twitches on occasion and, recently, a spot on my toe that hurt superficially though it had not been irritated or injured in any way. I once saw an acupuncturist who told me the last thing I want to be diagnosed with is fibromyalgia. He said I would become uninsurable for life insurance and the diagnosis would appear on my record for insurance queries and the like. What is wrong with me?! My doctor said it's not MS or lupus and still thinks I just have migraines. In the meantime, I've been doing some FM-related research and have started taking organic apple cider vinegar and added magnesium and MSM/glucosamine to my daily supplement regimine. All input appreciated. * Let me add that my life in general is extremely stressful, if this makes any difference.
