I went to see the pain psychologist yesterday. We had a very long meating and she asked me loads and loads of questions, which i found very hard to answer and did get a bit anxious and animated, then the tears came.
Anyway at the end of the meeting, she said she thinks there is a very strong chance i have ADHD, and hearing problems, and that i should follow up on them with my GP.
It's sent me into a bad depression today, cos yesterday i brushed it off, but today i think she may be right. My IQ is above average, yet i struggled alot to revise for my exams at school. I would read the same paragraph over and over and it just wouldn't go in. It still happens now, but i just close the book, or laptop and go and do something else, obviously it wasn't so easy when i needed to revise. I left school with grades far below that of which i was capable.
My memory and concentration have always been poor, but i put it down to my fibro and mental health problems. And quite often, if i have something i really want to say, i find it very hard to wait till someone has finished speaking. I guess you could say i'm impatient.
I often am trying to do a number of things at once, as i can;t seem to focus on just one thing. It gets very annoying, as i never really get anything finished.
And as for the hearing, i didn't think there was anything wrong in the slightest. But the more i think of it, alot of people say i speak loud, but it doesn't seem that way to me. Also, alot of noises seem to irritate my ears, and i'm often asking people to repeat things, as they are mumbling.
I just did a couple of basic online hearing tests (for a rough idea) and they all said that the results indicate there could be issues with my hearing and to see an ENT specialist.
I already have chronic sinusitis, so maybe it is to do with that?
I'm really freaking out now!
I already have fibro, BPD, depression, anxiety, OCD, social phobia, chronic sinusitis, asthma, eczema, vertigo, IBS, hiatis hernia, and waiting to find out if a have coeliac disease or a severe gluten intolerance (there's probably other things i can't think of right now as well!)
I really don't know if i can handle ANY more diagnosis's. I'm so fragile right now, with very little support around me. I feel like one more thing will break me.
I just don't know what to do
