Your Fibromyalgia symptoms...

Hi everyone,

My doctor thinks I may have Fibromyalgia, as I have had prickling and burning pain on my skin, as well as some aching and a mild circulatory disorder. I don't have the fatigue though, and I understand that that is a pretty common symptom. Could some of you share what your symptoms were before you were diagnosed.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks!
viktik

Re: Your Fibromyalgia symptoms...

Welcome Viktik. My symptoms were and are mostly muscle and joint pain, especially neck and back pain, fatigue, unable to sleep, burning pain, lack of concentration (fibro fog). The list could go on, but there is a list of fibro symptoms, I think it is a sticky post check it out it can help you. Good luck

Re: Your Fibromyalgia symptoms...

hello viktik and welcome, i had an auto acc. in 1994 and have not been the same ever sense. i also had a w/c acc in 2000 where i herniated a disc in my neck and from that point on my mid back hurt constantly. after a couple of years with dealing with it i was finally dx with fibro. i also have pain in my shoulders, headaches, insomnia as well as some other pains that just never have gone away. fatigue is a big part of it for me. i always feel like i have weights tied to my hands and feet. sometimes exercise does help but not all the time especially when i am having a flare.
well goodluck and take care.
