Could this be Fibromalgia?

I'm very new here and just need some answers.
In February I was rushed to the hospital because over a period of 3 days, one side of my body became numb. I was diagnosed with "mini strokes" until the MRI on my neck came back and I was told I have two bulging disks that are pressing on my cord. I have had neck pain for at least 10 years but never was given an MRI until now. The weird thing is that my neck wasn't bothering me at the time I was getting numb. Not until 3 weeks later did it start hurting (constantly) I now have neck pain constantly. I also have headaches and my shoulders hurt all the time. My hips and knees have hurt for the last 20/25 years. MRI's showed nothing wrong. I am now tired all of the time and have no energy. I saw my Dr. today and he said I may have Fibromalgia. ??? He gave my Cymbalta for my depression and ordered another blood test. Does this sound like Fibromalgia? I'm so tired of the pain.

What kind of doctor are you seeing? Sounds to me like its more than just one problem. I'd suggest a referral to a rheumatoligist if you haven't seen one.

Re: Could this be Fibromalgia?

I thought i was having a stroke when i was first diagnosed. My whole right side went numb. Weird. My head and brain mri's were normal, which ruled out stroke and MS.
