OK - here we go - Fibromyalgia (FMS) is a malfunction of the central nervous system. The mechanism that causes the problem is not understood. There is no cure, but it can be managed. Essentially, your pain receptors get stuck in the "on" position and stay there.

Your symptoms sound like fibromyalgia to me. Your post says that one doctor diagnosed you as having FMS. A vitamin D deficieny would certainly add to or give you FMS like sysmptoms. I am wondering if this doctor prescribed anything for your problems? If not, you need to see someone else right away. Go to the National Fibromyalgia Association website and ask them for a referral to a fibro-friendly doctor in your area.

To manage FMS pain, it is imperative that you get some degree of proper deep sleep. Most people with FMS are prescribed amitriptyline or some other sleep medication. Your muscles can not repair themselves without deep sleep. The less restorative sleep you get, the higher your pain levels will go. It is very difficult to break a pain cycle when it has gone on uninterrupted for some time.

Only certain classes of prescribed medication work for FMS. You should be on Cymbalta, Savella or Lyrica to help manage your pain issues. In addition, it sounds like you may need gabapentin for nerve pain based on the burning sensations and so on.

You need to follow up with the B12 and vitamin D issues too. I'd lay my hands on any and all test results you have had thus far and take them with you to the rheumotologist. You'll save some time and tests.

When you see the rheumy, take someone with you. A second set of ears is good when you are under stress and maybe not listening as carefully as you would otherwise.

And, I'd like to recommend that you take some time to read through the posts on this site and the information on the lefthand side of this page in the blue boxes. This is the best site out there for comprehensive information on this difficult syndrome. If you have any further questions or concerns, please ask. We are all here to share and helo one another. Take care and let us know how you are doing.
