stasm7forme - February 17

I am 38 years old and have been 99% sure for many years that I have FMS, possibly since I was 15. I have all the "general" symptoms, but have had doctors tell me all my pain and fatigue is related to my previous back surgeries and chronic back and neck pain. They never answer why I have body aches, joint pain, especially my hands and feet that wake me all night, even on Ambien, swelling and water retention, cold and heat intolerence, etc. After being on this site, the puzzle pieces are really falling into place. I believe I had PTSD at age 5 when a stranger came up to my friend and me with a knife. At 15, I started having "partial complex seizures" auditory type and severe dizzy spells. At 19 I had my first ruptured ovarian cyst and during surgery they found endometriosis. It goes on and on. I am also a nurse but have had to go on social security, so I need a doctor that takes Cigna Medicare. Thank you so much for your stories and suggestions! They really help :)

Hello stasm7forme - Welcome to the group.

Go to the National Fibromyalgia Association website and register. Then you will be able to see a list of fibro-friendly healthcare professionals in your area.

I hope that you can get a definitive answer to your health issues. Take care.
