Does this sound like FM - 24-hours of body aches
1 Replies
ab6262 - January 25

Hi,
I am having a hard time getting a condition diagnosed and one doctor suggested FM. Does this sound like anyone's symptoms. For the past 10 years, I get terrible all-over body aches (not muscle aches, it feels like the aches that come with a high fever . . .without the fever) and fatigue. But I only have the aches for 24-hours or less, then am fatigued for a day or two more. Between attacks, I am completely healthy.

I used to only get these attacks once a month or every other month. Unfortunately, for the past few months they are sometimes coming every 10 days.

I will push the doctor to test for FM, if this sounds like symptoms anyone else has had. I was doubtful because:
1) they are body aches, not muscle aches
2) they come quickly and are gone quickly

I would love to hear your "expert" opinions!
Thanks!

Hi ab6262 - This is a hard one without knowing any of your other symptoms. but Fibro can feel achy like that...like you have the flu. I know for me I spent years with the pain coming and going...it wasn't always constant, but it was more often then not.

It's hard to get a Fibro diagnosis because there is no actual test for it (like a blood test) It's basically a process of elimination. your doctor should be ruling everything else out that it could be (Fibro mimics a lot of other diseases) and be sure it's not something else. he can also do the "Tender Point" test which is where he puts slight pressure on certain spots of your body and it causes you pain. The other thing you should do is ask for a blood test to check your Vitamin D levels. Most Fibro sufferers are vitamin D deficient.

Hopefully someone else that reads this will be able to help you more. (sorry, don't have much time to respond to this!) Take Care, Stacey :o)
