[QUOTE=Kendra01;4187947]I have suffered from a condition for about 4 years that resembles Fibromyalgia in some ways, however, it is different from it as well. I have been examined by a GP, neurologist and 2 rheumatoligist and they say I do NOT have it. I agree because I lack some of the main symptoms. I have taken several online quizes and only have a couple of the main symptoms.
I have widespread muscle pain, stiffness and weakness. It used to be in my legs only, but now has gone into my arms. It feels like little tight muscle spasms that I can actually feel and massage out sometimes. They always return. Even when the spasms go, the muscles are so tight that I cannot lift my shirt over my head or reach around to put on my bra.
I have no burning, no tingling, no numbness and NO pain or tenderness in those special little trigger points. Since I went on Thyroid meds for hypothyroidism, I am no longer exhausted and have a great mental attitude, considering the muscle stiffness and pain in my arms. It's driving me crazy. It difficult to sleep when your arms are so tight and sore. Legs are still tight and sore too, but better.
Does Fibromyalgia have a cousin that is sort of like him, just a little different? I would appreciate any comments.[/QUOTE
I'm suggesting you have a sleep study. The body doesn't repair if you don't get restorative sleep and lactic acid and toxins accumulate throughout your body.]
