My mother was diagnosed with fibromyaga ( forgive my spelling please) about12 years. The doctor at that time rushed her through a gastricbypass surgery to lose weight and make life easier. Now she is 94# and on a stomach tube pumping protein straight in. She also eats as normal. This has been going on for almost 2 yrs with no weight gain at all. She is weak and tired all of the time. The doctor she has now only says if the tube comes out she will die. Never has he given a diagnosis. Then for a second opinion she was sent to his golfing buddy.

Symtoms are headaches, back pain, legs and but hurt. Always sick to stomach. Touch her arms and it hurts. Can not gain weight. Food makes her feel sick.

Meds are ambian, tracadone, metaforman, vitamins.
