Response to Post failed cycle health questions
Yes, I have gone through some of what you are going through.
Dry eyes was for me age related, I think, but I can no longer wear contact lenses. I'm stuck in my glasses all the time b/c contacts now drive me insane due to dry eyes.
I go through periodic bouts of joint pain, mostly in my finger joints but also in my knuckles a bit. Because it comes & goes, I have never looked into it, but it can last weeks or even a few months & then it's gone again.
The stomach bruising can last a really long time, as in many months. My memory has faded significantly but I recall it took close to a year for it to completely go away. Crazy.
Some nerve pain can linger, too, from the shots. I've seen others post on this before.
I think it's worth considering seeing a specialist, like a rheumatologist, since you have so much going on, but it's also possible it's a flare that will resolve on its own in a few months.
I do believe it's autoimmune related, but trying to find answers can be like chasing a ghost, so I have not tried to find answers on the joint issues. (I have numerous family members with autoimmune issues, so I'm speaking based on what they went through to get answers, often unsuccessfully despite troubling symptoms. Very frustrating.)
