My body is shutting down!!!

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 23, 2016, 5:30 AM
I had an appointment with my doctor 3 hours ago because of all the pain I have been having for months on end which is causing my body to shut down, I am ill all the time and have little to no energy to do what I must do, such as; housework, going outside my home, getting out of bed etc. etc. etc....!!!!!

BUT I have FINALLY been given a diagnosis! 

I have been Diagnosed with:
:bulletwhite:M.E (myalgic encephalomyelitis)
:bulletwhite:CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome)
:bulletwhite:Irritable Bowel Syndrome
:bulletwhite:Tension Headaches

My blood results I had done last week were fine, other than one of the tests in my system coming back slightly low and my white blood cells were extremely high.

I am back to see my doctor again for a longer appointment so she can talk to me more about it and go through pain medication and any therapy I will need (I am also receiving physiotherapy.) 

I hope this treatment can put me back in the right direction for getting better although it is lifelong chronic pain syndrome I am suffering. I am just happy it has not been diagnosed as mental (all in my head) as that is what many other doctors I have previously spoken to have thought and not believed me. I am in so much agony every single day, it is so bad that I actually feel like amputating my arms and legs with it! The saddest part is this pain is for life and it is going to become so much worse!! :(

Below are the definitions for CFS/ME!

 :bulletred:Chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) is a debilitating neurological illness, which is much more than just "fatigue". Post-exertional malaise is an important part of CFS/ME and can last for days, weeks or even months after exertion. Other symptoms include cognitive and neurological symptoms, chronic pain (sometimes extremely severe), cardiac problems, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), bladder problems, swollen lymph nodes, chronic or intermittent fever, increased susceptibility to infections, allergies, nausea and hair loss. About 0.5-1% of the population is affected by CFS/ME. Anyone can get it, even small children, and it may be infectious. The severity varies from mild to extremely severe (unable to do anything at all) and some people even die of the illness or its complications.
