Could this be fibromyalgia?
1 Replies
Chloe - December 5

I am 26 years old and for 3 years I have been suffering with tenosynovitis. I have had 2 ops to relieve this and although the docs say the 2nd one has worked I feel no better. Now I have started with a whole load of different symptoms on top of everthing else. I have low back pain no relief from sitting or standing. I have tingling and sometimes numbness in my legs and feet. I get bad headaches, feel dizzy, get blurred vision and have a general overall weakness. Also sometimes across my cheeks goes numb and itchy. Could these all be symptoms of fibromyalgia?

Hi Chloe: You are suffering with this tenosynovitis. This is an inflamation of the tendon sheath and it also has calcium deposits within that sheath and is caused by repeated strain and injury according to my medical dictionary. Can this be a part of Fibromyalgia, it's a possibility because you apparently have gone through some trauma. Dealing with these things for a long time stresses your body out and anxiety and depression could cause your symptoms of low back pain and other general symptoms you have aquired. I, myself took a long time to find the right physician to handle these things but I will tell you if you talk with your GP and get an referral to a good psychiatrist who can monitor antidepressants better than anyone I know within just a few months I think you will be doing much better. Of course this has helped me a great deal and so often people get the wrong ideas about psychiatrists but it helped me. Hopes this helps you because you are too young to keep this thing continuing through your early years of life. Hope I could help.
