I would honestly get checked out by a cardiologist. I know how weird that sounds and totally off topic- but it really might not be. A lot of the things you're describing (and not to scare you), are similar to the signs of heart problems such as heart disease, heart attack and stroke. Sometimes it is hard to differentiate between symptoms caused by cronic pain ( which I also have- I have degenerative arthritious in both knees and athrtitious in my back from years of sports- i'm only 21
.) A few months back though, a lot of my symptoms were really weird so they sent me to a heart specialist to rule out more major problems before diagnosing other ones. Their reasoning was- heart disease is the number one killer of women ages 25 and up. And many, many times, women ignore the signs and think it's something else- also, heart problems are harder to detect in women than in men because the vessles in our cardiovascular system are smaller and often, things "seem" less related to heart issues if you're not thinking about it. I'm not saying that to scare you at all- just to let you know that you may want to have something such as heart disease or other underlying conditions ruled out before you look into other things. I would definitely have a cardiologist check you out and make them rule out any heart problems (they can cause sleepiness, pain, tingling, dizziness, fainting, pain, "heartburn" symptoms...etc)....definitely have heart disease and anything related ruled out. Then, if there is nothing else going on there- I would seek an arthritious specialist's opnion- a lot of time doctors that specialize in that also know a great deal about pain management and lifestyle changes that may help improve your condition.
I hope I didn't scare you- but I just thought it was worth mentioning- your symptoms match some of the early signs of heart disease....i am not a doctor nor am I trying to diagnose you in any way- but I do think you should ask about it and have it ruled out just to be safe
.and I honetly would feel bad if I didn't mention it. / Good luck sweetie. I hope you feel better soon and are able to get the answers you need
