Any suggestions.. Could this be fibro?

Nerve disturbance in parenthesis is on a scale from 0-10 with 10 being unbearable

• Progressively stiff muscles, stiff neck, 2005 left elbow would fasciculate after workouts for a little while. Tight band around my head near end of 2007. Cold hands and feet that were beginning to feel a little numb at times (1.5)
• Had a climax in symptoms when felt electric shock from bottom of spine to top of spine. Felt paralyzed for 5 seconds. (10)
• Was left with ear pressure and head pressure as well as small fasciculation’s around body. Soreness began to worsen through body. (5)
2008-2012 Constant Symptoms-
• Tight band feeling around head and ears and eyes with sore neck as well as back and total body tightness 2008 (7) 2012(4)
• Feet tingle and are constantly sore (always cold) muscles feel tight and slightly numb in feet 2008(0.5) 2009 (1) 2010 (2) 2011 (3) 2012 (3.5)
• Small muscle twitches throughout body (1.5)
• Drunk feeling, hard to concentrate by band feeling around head (3.5)
• Wrists and hands don’t feel 100 percent but are much better than feet (1)
• When lifting weights or doing pushups whole body shakes when performing exercise.
Additional New 2013 Symptoms-
• Right index and middle vibrate at times and are sore at times.
* Left thumb feels 10% numb at top of thumb at times
• Feet feel tight and electric shocks are felt in both feet when walking at times.
• Upper thighs are vibrating some and hips joints and are sore
• Knees are sore at times
Past Tests-
• NCV and EMG both came back clean in 2008 with only left ulnar nerve having slight damage. Has not gotten worse in 5 years.
• Brain MRI and Spine MRI- clean 2008
• Echocardiogram 2011- clean

I have been to the neurologist twice. Once in 2008 and in 2012. They did a complete physical exam twice and conducted the tests above in 2008. The doctors state that I do not have any nerve disease or peripheral nerve damage and may just have to live feeling 80 percent of normal. Any suggestions on what I should or could do? Thank you in advance for your help.

Re: Any suggestions.. Could this be fibro?

It could be a number of things. First, I would tell your doctor that you want answers and to find out what is going on. Make a list of how this is affecting your daily life. Sometimes knowing that the symptoms are causing you to not be able to perform activities of daily living seem to make the docs want to investigate more thoroughly. Also, don't be afraid to change doctors if yours is not wanting to investigate.
