Re: Could this cause fibromyalgia?
I don't know about accidents involving microwaves; maybe you could find more info on the net or with a radiation/oncologist or radiologist. Just a thought.
Many people with fms have had injuries or surgeries that have triggered onset, but not everyone.
You will find so much information on this board and caring, helpful people whose knowledge and experience with fms is invaluable. I highly rec the book "Fibromyalgia and chronic myofascial pain" by Devin Starynyl. I checked it out the library and then bought it. It explains everything, even how to live with fibrofog. It is my fms/cmp bible.
With doc visits, what helped me was to have 3 or 4 simple questions and gave a copy to my doc and we reviewed them together. I practiced what i was going to say before my visit. I did this because i would get too emotional and foggy and the doctors not listen. I also took a list of my symptoms.
Ask for a referral to a rheum or pain mgmt doctor who can diagnose your illness, if your doctor won't or can't dx you and doesn't know how to treat you.
I too have fibrofog, achy joints and muscles and periods of fatigue during the day. I had part of this summer w/o symptoms and thought it was all gone. But the symptoms cycled. Now i am back to writing them on my calendar.
Fear/stress/anxiety all release hormones known to increase fms symptoms, so try to be calm. I know this is easier said than done. But it does help. It helps the fog too.
I wish you the best and hope that you find the answers you need and treatment that is best for you.
You are in my prayers.
Bless you and may you receive your answers and treatment plan soon.
