Within minutes of my 2nd Depo Provera injectionI knew I was in trouble.
I developed pain pretty much everywhere, my head felt like it was going to explode, I was sick, my breasts became unbearably painful and I felt so shattered I didn't think I would make the 5 minute journey home.
6 months after my breast pain had gone but not the joint pain, IBS, headaches, exhaustion, irritability and attacks of crying for no reason.
it's now been 5 years and there has been no improvement.
I have been told I have depression, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, an overactive imagination and that I should consider getting myself a little job and take up walking by doctors.
the week before the injection I won a national title in a sport I had done all my life, I have a successful career as an engineer.
Not one doctor has even bothered to listen that my life changed dramatically when I had the injection.
how do I get some kind of health back.
