I finally received my diagnosis of Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos and Fibromyalgia, years of being fobbed off by doctors with wild unexplained and crippling symptoms. "It's just anxiety" "Oh it's normal women's hormones" " Are you sure you're not pregnant" "You're too young to have something wrong" "Oh something like that is far too rare"... Until it became worse, then it was tests upon tests and long referral waits with "be careful with your body" as the only advice in the meantime while I was in the dark wondering what on earth is wrong with me. Now I have the diagnosis I'm so relieved, but so exhausted. They say a label doesn't matter, but at least I know what I'm dealing with now and I can take the right precautions and get the right help. Keep fighting if you're going through something similar, you know your body best, and when something doesn't feel right. Please don't let the doctors just fob you off and make you feel like a 'hypochondriac', you're worth so much more than that. I send all my love and strength your way.
