Pls help! Does this sound like Fibro?
My partner has been having severe symptoms for quite awhile and no one here has taken her seriously or found anything wrong with her. She's had CT scan, MRI w/ and w/o contrast, ANA testing, lyme test, EMG, EEG, etc. She has tested normal/negative for everything. She was finally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia by a Rheumatologist but her primary doctor isn't convinced that that is what's wrong. We don't know anyone who has Fibro so we have no one to talk to about this.
She is weaning off of a high dose of Neurontin, taking Cymbalta 60 mg, Nortriptyline 25 mg. She was prescribed Vicodin, Percocet and Ultram but nothing does anything for her pain.
Do any of these symptoms sound like fibro?
Severe pain (stabbing, shooting, electrical) like someone is trying to cut off her arm or railroad spikes are impaling her
Twitching (she gave herself a 2nd degree burn because she was holding something hot and she twitched)
Blurred vision and eye pain
Intermittent facial paralysis (She was seen by the ER for her headaches and they said she had Bell's Palsy because her face was drooping on one side)
Trouble swallowing (sometimes because the side of her mouth droops or her throat feels like it is closing up)
Slow word recall
Diminished sense of smell/taste (Can only smell or taste things like vinegar)
Weakness to the point of not being able to walk
Slurred speech (she says that her tongue feels too big for her mouth)
Feeling like there are bugs crawling under her skin
Feeling like there are needles being threaded under her fingernails
Extreme fatigue to the point of passing out while doing other activities
Numbness in extremities (can't feel her leg at all)
