These are my symptoms. Does it sound like fibromyalgia?
Pain in back, shoulders and neck. Especially in the morning - neck and shoulders are really stiff and soar.
Hurts to lay down on back. Sometimes it hurts to wear a bra, any pressure on my back makes it hard to breath and hurts. My husband is good about giving me a message. He says he can feel some "puffy" spots in my back sometimes. Like little knots and they really hurt.
Pain down back of legs - especially behind knees.
Sometimes pain in chest - mostly on right side along chest bone. Feeling like I can't get a good breath or that I'm getting a bear hug or something heavy is sitting on my chest.
Itchy skin with no rash
Sometimes light headed and sweating
It's weird but I have this around the same time at night - around 8-9 PM
(maybe hormonal? - I'm 61 female)
Yesterday I started getting pains in my fingers
I've been to 2 different chiropractors with no help. In fact, I think the ajustments made me feel worse. Have a lot of inflammation that flares up.
Had xrays that showed I have digentative disks and some curve in spine.
Had a chest xray in Feb because I was having trouble breathing - couldn't get a good breath and felt all out of breath after walking short distances.
It took them 4 months to tell me it was ok. I had to keep calling them to find out the results. My blood work was good, had an ekg for heart (only took them about 1 min) said my heart was ok.
I'm trying to find a better Dr but until then, I was wondering if this sounds like fibro. I have all but 1 of the tender pts. and hurt all over - especially in the mornings when I get up - all stiff and sore.
Sorry this is so long. Just needed to talk to someone I guess.
Thanks for listening
