Same pain has happened in right arm, shoulders and neck is often the worst causing severe headaches
Fatigue

Dropping things losing grip
Bladder problems
Stomach - ibs symptoms
Allergies - nasal blockage
General ill feeling
Severe depression and anxiety have had sleeping disorders
Restless legs

Re: MRI Results

Could be fibro but it also can be many other things. Unfortunately the only way to know for sure is to go through all those dreaded tests. Time isn't our best friend here. You can either have your primary doc start looking if they are up on fibro or the best bet would be a rheumatologist.
