Could I have Fibromyalgia?
2 Replies
Tyreeplus2 - April 8

Hello everyone! I'm new here. I've been having some strange symptoms for the past month or so that the ER doctors seem to think is fibromyalgia. My mother had this and so did my aunt. I have had migraines and headaches everyday for the past month, with no help from my usual medication. I've been seen in the ER and was admitted with a possible stroke when my right side was going numb. They ran tests and no stroke. A few days ago, I was in the ER again with a possible heart attack. Again, ran a bunch of tests and no heart attack. Since then, I have had pain in my neck, shoulders, arms, hips, knees, you name it...I feel like I've been run over by a bus. I have no energy and I wake up so tired. I have problems sleeping because my legs ache and I have to get up to go to the bathroom several times a night, which is totally unusual. Reading up on the symptoms, I have a lot of the symptoms but I know it could be many other things. I go to a neurologist later this month and a rheumatologist next month. Is it all in my head? All of these symptoms coming up at once are really scaring me!!

I should add that I've also had periods of memory loss, forgetfulness, I can't focus. I used to work out three times a week but I physically can't do it. I am sensitive to light and sounds and I have problems driving at night. Some of these symptoms have been off an on for many years, some over 20 years. I suffer from depression and anxiety. Seems like I get worse if I'm really stressed or something happens bad in my life. My mom, father-in-law, and aunt have passed away this past year. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Any amount of stress will set of a bad flare. Sounds like you've dealt with allot of losses this year, and that equals stress. You mentioned symptoms appearing in last month or so at beginning of your post then you mentioned other symptoms have been going on for years. Could you maybe make it down a bit? It's a little different for everyone so anything is possible. It's rheumatologists that typically DX fibro. Good luck with your appointments.
