have I got fibro?
 
Hi, I am new here and wondered if anyone could help me, I am waiting for blood tests etc and being impatiant I ended up on the internet!! I have looked at the symptoms of fibromyalgia and some of them seem to be what I have although the doc is also considering Thyroid problems or Ms
Basically my body aches all over, I have weakness in my arms which affects me if I'm folding washing etc, my shoulders ache and I have a tender spot in the small of my back which I cannot seem to locate, I "feel" it but when I try & touch it I can't find it if that makes sense? I am not aware of having a sleep problem although can never get enough and always feel v.tired in the morning I would be grateful of any help with this as the not knowing is causing me great worry

Kx

Re: have I got fibro?
 
Your symptoms are common to FMS. Thyroid issues are prevelant, especially hypothyroidism. Hypoglycemia may be causing you to be tired (another common complaint of FMS patients).
