Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.F.
You are told you have fibro myalgia, hyper mobility of joints, and C.F.S. You have numb ness, dry skin,and joint pains. pains aggrevating during periods. Fingers bending, and ryes blurry, morning when you wake up pains are miserable.
I am sorry to hear that at the age of 33 you have all this sort of diseases.
I advise you to consult a neurologist for diagnosis and treatment.
With the use of anti epileptics you can have a relief of 50%. remaining you should bear, and that will be with in reach of your capacity.
Besides i advise you to follow some diet recommendations as avoid taking potato, other tubers, tomato, egg, chicken, and sea foods to minimise the pains and numbness of the joints.
Wishing for a relief and with in the reach of your capacity.
Best regards.
