: This is more than likely a thyroid problem. Get the second opinion of an endocrinologist and INSIST on a TRH test which will reveal any imbalance IF your thyroid panels appeared normal.
: FMS is a useless diagnosis which means essentially that it is in our heads. Don't settle for this demeaning diagnosis just to have a name on your problems. I have been through this myself.
To the above message,
Thanks for making me feel worse than I already do with your intellegent insight to the FMS diagnosis. Not everyone is the same and some of us have had the thyroid test along with Lyme and others. All I can say to you is it is not "all in my head," unless you mean that it has to do with the central nervous system and the serotoin and nerotransmitters.
I am trying to do some research on the Lyme because both my husband and myself had an unusual virus 10 years ago with major joint pain, I experenced swelling in my lower legs and a small non raised rash or more like small dots. Someone suggested I look into Lyme even though I have been tested and it came out neg. I DO have FMS and CFS.
