does this sound like fibro
Hi, I'm 36yrs. old divorced mother of three, I was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia, I don't really think that's what I have but I've had so many tests done and that's what the rheumatologist came up with. I was just wondering if my symptoms are what other people have:
constant lower back pain(sciatia)
I also have raynaurds syndrome
have severe dry eyes and mouth, but neg. for sjorenens syndrome
have hypermobility syndrome
restless leg syndrome
suffer from migraine's
I have a small pineal cyst
told i have arthritis in lower back
I feel shaky and my hands seem to jerk and twitch alot and I have constant
numbness in my fingers.
I am always tired
I get pins and needles sensation in hands and arms
lots of stomach pain, bouts of diarhea
yeast infections and lower abdominal pain
lately I've been having hot flashes and I think I'm way too young for menopause. All pap smears and test normal
I've always loved the sun but noticed recently the heat makes me feel horrible, I get very hot and break out in a rash all over my arms and legs and face.
My doctors say all tests all normal for autoimmune disorders, I've been tested for lyme and all kinds of bloodwork, all normal. neg. for diabeties and thyroid problems. neg for lupus too.
I guess the doc's feel if they cant get any positive test results then either I'm nuts or I have fibro. They made me feel like I was crazy and so I've deceided to stop going because they didn't seem much help.
If anyone has any advice I would appriciate it.. I've done alot of reading on fibro and seen all the commercials on t.v. I don't have cronic aches and pains and I work in a supermarket and lift very heavy items all day long, I constantly have boxes fall on me and its not the worst pain I've ever felt. I get lots of bruises from work and don't even know when they happen. I have read that with fibro just even the slightest touch or push can cause alot of pain. This is why I dont think I have fibro and rather something else the docs overlooked. I would appriciate any advice or info. ThankYou
