do i have fibro
2 Replies
garty - May 6

Hi i am new. Since january i have had painful knees, elbows and ankles especially a sports therapist said i have tendonitis in all of these areas. I was going to the gym 4 times a week but stopped due to all of the pain and rested. i thought i had just over done it, but the pain does not seem to be improving. My gp said i has tennis and golfers elbow so why does my other elbow hurt too. I do have ibs and am hypothyroid and suffer with depression and often feel tired. Could my symptoms be fibro can anyone help me?

They could be, but there are so many things with similar symptoms, you should see a doctor. A rheumatologist would be the place to start.

Hello garty. You mentioned you are seeing a GP and I wonder if I would be in your best interests if you find a good rheumatologist. The pain, tiredness and depression you talked about could certainly be fibro but I believe that those symptoms can also be related to hypothyroid. There are several symptoms of both fibro and hypothyroid that are similar. I have pain in all the joints, and have experienced the tiredness you talked about along with many other symptoms and have been formally diagnosed with fibro. Your symptoms could certainly be fibro, but again, I encourage you to see a rheumatologist who will do all the testing needed for an accurate diagnosis. I wish you well.
