What's wrong with me?

Do these symptoms ring any bells with anyone:

- Chest pain when breathing in, coughing, laying in certain positions.
- Constantly numb/tingly hands, feet and particular spot on lower back.
- Heavy limbs.
- Extremely tired. Often get home from work at 5 and sleep through until next morning (I get up at 4.30 for work).

Had a cold around Christmas and thought symptoms were just related to this, but they aren't going away.

Will go to the dr, it's just a case of finding the time when not at work.

You should prioritise your own health over work. Call in sick and meet up with your gp as soon as possible. Nobody at your office will thank you for having e.g. heart problems, or a breakdown from burnout, or longstanding hypothyroidism, or whatever the underlying problem might be.

What kind of work is it anyway, that makes you get up at 4.30 a.m.? That's awfully early. You'll need to get to bed no later than at 8.30 p.m. with that schedule...

I'd suggest some blood tests. Could be symptoms of lupus
