Get every possibility checked at the doctors

Since having a laparoscopy I’ve been kept awake and had to change my clothes several times and even my bedding due to hot and cold flashes.    The doctor sent me for a blood test to make sure my stomach wasn’t infected and to check my thyroid which both came back normal.  It’s probably hormonal so I’ve ordered a herbal supplement on the request from my doctor.

I have persistent digestive problems and have lost 7lbs in 2 weeks since my laparoscopy.  This is being checked out from the biopsies I had took whilst under anaesthetic.  Certain foods are setting this off so I am keeping a temporary food diary to remove the culprits.

I was took into hospital by the NHS a number of weeks ago with crippling pain with a suspected appendicitis, all the hospital found was a cyst and they put the increased pain down to my fibromyalgia.

I guess what I am trying to say is not to just take the diagnosis as ‘oh it’s because you have fibromyalgia’ I mean we know our bodies better than anyone and I knew there was something going on inside my abdomen.  Unfortunately the NHS told me to go through the long process of getting referred, waiting for a consultant etc.  I decided to go private through my healthcare at work and scheduled a laparoscopy.

When I went in for the laparoscopy my bowels were severely inflamed and so was my uterus and it was covered in fibroids, plus I have 2 extremely large internal varicose veins.  The consultant removed the ovarian cyst but didn’t want to take it any further until the biopsy results come back.
I’m not telling you this for sympathy I’m telling you this as an example of other things that could be going on inside your body that COULD contribute to your fibromyalgia symptoms.  Inflammation isn’t good for a person that doesn’t have fibromyalgia nevermind someone who has!!

If you feel you need further tests or need something investigating then I would recommend making an appointment pronto!

Hi there, I am a busy mum who had found a new lease in life by completing my diploma in Hypnotherapy and NLP and led a successful part-time online hypnotherapy business, preparing personalised online recordings and using tried and tested NLP techniques as homework for my clients. I found out I had advanced degenerative disease in my spine over 10 years ago and needed a fusion in March 2014, it was then that things got really weird. It took me over 2 years to get diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and that is when the fun started........
