: I have had Fibromylagia since 1988. It has been mostly concentrated in my back. About 1 year ago I started having vision problems - my sight changes every three months and the eye doctors can't figure it out. Now - I have begin having leg and feet problems.
: My legs are feeling wobbly and like they want to cramp - but my feet are the real problem. The last three toes on my feet feel like sharp pins - I can barely walk it hurts so bad and my feet are almost totally asleep. If I take any more Pamelor I won't be able to get up to go to work. I work 45 hours a week in a high stress IS environment. Even scarrier I am beginning to have dramatic short term memory loss and a difficult time concentrating. I feel it is beginning to affect my job.
: Any one else out there who has had these severe symptoms and any advise on how to handle them without more pain medicine?
: Any and all advise appreciated.
Becky, I have had FM for a long, long time. My main problems are in my hips, legs and feet. Not numbness, but terrible aching and weakness. My finger tips do go numb at times. Come on over to the new board. We would love to have you join us! Linda D
