Re: Fibromyalgia and Costochondritis???? Pregnant and scared...

I can relate to your symptoms. I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia 20 years ago but recently have developed strange symptoms like yours. I also have the swelling in my left side of my neck, my chest, and tightness behind one leg. When you mentioned the skin crawling arachnoiditis came to mine. Check it out. I haven't been diagnosed with it but in light of additional symptoms I experience I wonder about having that too as it can go hand in hand with fibro. Have you had any back surgeries, nerve blocks? I had back surgery and since then I have the symptoms you mention plus severe body cramping, restless legs, heat sensitivity and bladder spasms. I also have a rash that comes and goes.
It's scary everynight going to bed isn't it? I wonder what is next.
