Fibromyalgia or anxiety?


i am not sure if I am suffering from acute anxiety, perimenopause, neuropathy or the beginning of fibromyalgia.

Can anybody please advise?

For the past three months I have been suffering form:

White coated tongue

Sleep disturbance (one month). I can sleep no longer than 2-4 hours and then cannot go back to sleep. I don't wake up with pain though or panic. I just wake up If I take Nytol I can sleep four and a half hours and then I wake up and can sleep another hour. I cannot sleep in the day at all.

Sometimes my knees feel numb when I wake up

The thing that bothers me the most is intermitant burning sensations in the soles of feet and palms of hands and now upper back. Not painful like sunburn. Sometimes elbows

Occasional sore eyes. But to be honest have only experienced this a handful of times. And not for a few weeks

I did have bladder problems but they seem to have gone since switching to an alkaline diet. I think my anxiety made them worse. When I starting focusing on my burning skin the bladder frequency and burning diminished. Or maybe it was cutting out caffeine and Aspartame.

I dont have IBS but my bowel habits have changed. I gave up gluten and sugar three weeks ago so maybe this is why.

I don't have any extreme pain nor pain in any of the tender points.

My muscles do feel weaker but again that could be tiredness. I have not slept properly in over three weeks.

No headaches

Some brain fog but could this be to to with lack of sleep? I feel fatigued. My symptoms seem to get better if i feel relaxed.

I am so worried that I have the beginning of fibromyalgia. I have been on the internet constantly. My symptoms seem to coincide with extreme anxiety (except the white tongue), Candida, peri-menopause (although my periods are coming more often and shorter and I have no PMS or pain with them).

I am worried my anxiety is causing the symptoms.

Or that this is the start of fibromyalgia and my symptoms will get worse.

Has anybody experienced this?

PS I did not have an accident prior to this. Some stress but nothing out of the ordinary. I did give up smoking on January 3rd 2013.

Nobody in my family has fibromyalgia although my Mother has Lupus which has been in remission for many years.
