I am hoping someone could maybe give me an idea of where to go with this.
Its a bit of a long story but I will try to keep it short. At 15 I was nearly killed in a road accident where a car hit me on the right and I was thrown through the windscreen. No breaks nothing but a damaged head and some major bruising. Last year I was on holiday with my husband and we done a lot of walking on one particular day. I had a few pains in my back but thought it was just stiff.
Anyway, it continued and about a week after we returned I started going to the doctors. Originally it was sciatica, then my weight, it was in my mind and finally after a change of doctor I was referred to the orthopaedic specialist.
In February of this year I was finally diagnosed with degenerative arthritis of the spine, sciatica and a slipped disc. I was then given a caudal epidural in March and when I was seen in the pain clinic a couple of months later it had helped although not brilliantly.
Now I am having trouble with my right wrist (being investigated for carpal tunnel) right shoulder, hip, knee, shoulders and my feet.
For everything but the feet the joints are painful to move with a burning sensation and I have clicking in a lot of them too.
My feet however are unbearable. I can barely walk on them because the pain is so much. I cry myself to sleep some nights because even though I have taken all my meds it is still too painful. Nothing is easing the pain.
I have been for blood tests but they apparently said I had had a slight infection (no more information). I have mentioned the pain and clicking to my doctor and he has just shrugged it off saying talk to the pain clinic or the physio (for my wrist) and there is nothing more he can do. This time last year I felt on top of the world and then within a month things had fallen down around my ears health wise. I feel like no one is interested in listening to my issues because I have only recently been diagnosed. They dont see to think that there is a problem but I know there is and so does my husband. Even crying in the doctors hasnt helped. Can you please point me in the right direction and advise me who I should see. I cant take this much more.
