Fibro or MS?
2 Replies
Kristie - February 16

I have been through all the tests to rule out MS (normal mri's, lp, etc). The neuro says MS is "highly unlikely". They say it may possibly be early fibro, however, I do not have any tender points (although I may I have trigger points in my back that make my arms numb, sore, tingling).
My questions:
how many of you have had the MS scare, only for it to be fibro?
Have many of you experienced body-wide brief and transitory numbness / tingling throughout the day?
Can fibro pain (or myofascial pain) be worse on one side?
Thanks!

Hi Kristie. I wanted to respond to your post. I personally have never had the fear of MS. I have a fear of lupus. I wanted to say thought in another group I belong to there are MANY people who have gone through what you are now going through. So many of the symptoms mimic fibro from both diseases that it is really scary. I am happy to say that 99% of the people who were afraid of MS when it really did turn out to be fibro. Take care and try not to worry.

Before being diagnosed, I did the internet diagnosis and was sure I had everything from hyper thyroidism to MS and Lupus. I do not have the trigger points. My rheumatologists states that the trigger points were established to identify patients for clinical trials. They have since discovered that the trigger points are not present in every FMS patient.
