I have been diagnosed with Fibro by two rheumatologists and one neurologist.
With the symptoms I have my family Dr. who thinks I am a hypochondriac. It didn't help when I went for a Psyciatric assessment and among other things she said that I was a hypochondriac and needed severe therapy which she didn't have time to do but would recomend someone.(It doesn't help when my family Dr. gets that type of a consult report). When he read it he said he thought she must have been talking about someone else with all the things she wrote.
No one seems to understand. I have seen pretty much every specialist there is and had so many tests that come back normal.
It doesn't help with my Dr. either when everything comes back normal. He said that Fibro is basically a catch all when a proper diagnosis cannot be made for anything else.
-I have sore arm and leg muscles.
-my upper back kills me-lower is bad too.
-reduced range of motion in neck.
-my shoulders hurt day and night. It is impossible to relax them ever.
-numb tingling fingers(hard to grasp)(bothers at night also)
-shortness of breath
-tired all the time.(could stay in bed all day )
-dizzy and disoriented feeling.
-cannot sleep well. Hard to get to sleep and then wake up.
-my eyes especially the right one is blurry and sore.
-cannot read easily because it is hard to focus.(had my glasses changed 3 times in a year.)
-droopy right lid.
-temple pain ,occipital pain-bad at night but always there.
-difficulty swallowing. Like something in my throat.
-sore jaws.achy all the time.
-clench jaws at night.
-ear pain.(and feel full)
-tongue pain and burning (24/7)
-post nasal drip.
-short term memory the pits.
-osteoarthritis-really bad in c-spine,lower back L5-S1,wrists and fingers,clavicle.
-possible TMJ but not a real diagnosis.
I am on:Avapro (BP) , Asa low dose, pantoloc(PPI)for GERD, Celexa, Clonazepam
I have been treated like there is nothing wrong but Anxiety which I know is there now since I am plagued with symptoms and they haven't found something CONCRETE.
Today I had my Dr. call me after he was done at the office because I am just zapped. He suggested that I take Percocet(Oxycocet) as needed. I have some since I used it for pain about a year ago.
Sorry for the long post BUT I NEED some input as to what is happening to me.
