    Why have I been suffering pain, fatigue and other symptoms since 1985?

    Prior to 1985 I was never ill. After having a minor operation under general anesthetic I woke up and was never the same. Stabbing, intense pain in the joints and muscles, cramps, migraine headaches, extreme fatigue, anxiety, restless legs, poor memory, tingling in hands and feet, dizziness, ringing in ears, nausea, feeling like I'm on a boat in stormy water, panic attacks, bad headaches, feeling confused, getting up in the morning feeling like I've been run over by a truck and feeling like I haven't had any sleep, Irritable Bowel, urinary tract infections, cant take many many medications because of adverse reactions, cant stand bright lights, eyes go blurry, burning mouth/tongue, cant think straight - and I am sure there is more that I cant remember for now. Sometimes the pain and tiredness isnt so bad, then I have these flare ups where the pain and tiredness is very very bad and it is hard to function for weeks on end. Please can you help?

    Yours is not an easy question to answer especially without assessing your system to see what that might reveal. However, I would undertake dietary improvements, an appropriate supplement program and have your spine, muscles and nervous system checked out by a Network chiropractor and correct as needed. This approach is not to immeidately make the symptoms go away, but rather to help your own body start to function better. The better your own body functions, the more likely your are to start feeling better.

    By your symptoms, it sounds like fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome. I think you need tests and investigations to exclude auto immune or inflammatory disease before a firm diagnosis can be made or treatment can be started.
