Hi, My Dr now thinks I have fibro. He checked my back after complaining of this constant burning in upper back area. He said that the muscles on the right side of my back are swollen. I also have 12/18 trigger points, sleep problems, pain, (especially in the ribs, chest and back), tingling etc.
I don't know much about Fibro., so have a couple questions. My CRP and WBC came back elevated. My Dr said its consistent with inflammation. Now, I do have Achilles Tendonitis, and chostocondritis which are both inflammatory disorders, is Fibro an inflammatory disorder as well?
Also, is swollen muscles(in mu back) consistent with Fibro.
Sorry I seem so uneducated but I am trying to piece this all together.
Oddly-I do not have IBS, nor migraines which I hear are common in Fibro.
Thanks for any help you can give me,
