Re: Firbromyalgia or MS
Sorry guys I been so delayed on responding to the post. My muscle spasms are erratic they don't have a rhyme or reason to them. I'm in constant pain any where from mild to chronic - now shakes - weak legs - and constant fatigue. I spoke to my family doc. bout the rheumotologist and he went over all her notes with me and pointed out that my symptoms are very similar to fibro, and that if my test come back negative that she gonna do a lyme disease test on me. I did emphasize to him that i want an MRI of my neck, back and head done - he said that is usually last resort - when nothing else can be found . My fiance was with me at the time and we both pointed out that my symptoms are very similar to his - and i even said i will keep asking for it til i get it. He reassured me that I have not been diagnosed with fibromyalgia yet, that the rhuemotologist is leaning towards it. He also stated that I am in for a long hall and diagnosing me with something will take some time. I also been seeing a social worker and she stated if I have any issues with all this she will have a talk with my doc as an advocate to revoice my feelings on the MRI.
My newest symptom is constant itching all over body - nothing there - no bumps, rashes, or bug bites. Tried lotion - skin still itches after the fact.
