Does this sound like FM to you?

Mike - July 25

Hello All,
I'm trying to figure out what is wrong with me and I was looking for some insight from those of you who may have had similar experiences. I'm a 29 yo male who has a bunch of symptoms that didn't seem to add up. Also so far according to my Dr.'s my test are all normal. I have had random pain and stiffness all over my body on and off for ten years. Lately they have been worse. The pain seems to be everywhere and it almost seems like they sometimes roam. Also I have had bowel problems, headaches, muscle twitches, problems sleeping, major fatigue, and again lately dizziness and what generally fees like a change in consciousness that seems to be somehow linked to my eye movements? The only thing that may not fit is the points of pain. I have noticed at times I'm very sensitive to touch and some of the listed pressure points are uncomfortable to touch I wouldn't call it super painful. Sound like FM to you? Thanks in advance!

It is possible. I would check with a Rheumatologist. Until you know exactly where the pressure points are, it can be iffy to try to find yourself. It doesn't take a lot of pressure if you get it just right. If everything else is negative. It is most likely FM

Thanks for your input. I'm on the list to see a rheumatologist but my appt. is not until 9/12. I dunno if I can handle this as is for that long.

I know it's hard to get in to see new docs, See if they have a cancellation list, or if you can call in periodically to check for new availability. You may want to see if there is another one in the group, or elsewhere you may be able to get in to sooner. Good Luck.

Hey thanks again. I almost forgot one of the symptoms I have that really stinks! Does anyone get heart palpatations?

Hi Mike ,It sure sounds like fybro to me but have it checked anyway. I have all these symptoms. The pressure points I have are only sore for a minute or so when pressure is applied ,but it seems to be anywere in my body , like the other day I banged my arm on bus it was excrutiaitng for a few minutes, the headaches I have are unbearable as if something is moving around .redwookie I suffer from heart flutters and palpitations , then I have a pressure feeling sensation on my chest and throat.
take care all

Thanks for the input Ibritz and Kathleen. I will indeed continue to seek help through my Dr.'s but just doing my part as a responsible patient. And also, someone who is near their wits end!
