well you name it I probably have at least one symptom of it. I have been batteling breif episodes of numbness in my feet and tingeling in my hands. I have severe fatigue, and muscle aches in my thighs. I have chronic migrains (about 4 per mnth, lasting 3 hours or more) I had a hysterectomy due to adenomiosis. I was having severe stomach pain with swelling, before the surgery and guess what I still have it, along with pain in my lower abdomen. I have swelling in my joints mainly my fingers and knees. I hve heart palpatations at rest. I have a strange rope like drainage from my eyes and occasional fainting spells. I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia but the same Doctor told me it was all in my head. I was tested for MS and Lupus but hey were negative. Does any one have any clue as to what this could be?

  • Sounds like fibromyalgia-ME-CFS ... probably manifestations of the same disease. Not imagined though. Certainly not. The swelling in uncharacteristic though. Generally pain without swelling. Other symptoms: morning stiffness, paresthesias, muscle cramps esp at night, pains, tender spots (pressure points), eyesight deteriorates, vertigo, intolerance of cold and hot, unrefreshing sleep, fasciculation, sleep disturbances, anxiety disorder, dry eyes, abdominal pains (irritable bowel syndrome), tiredness, poor concentration, feeling wrecked after exercise, no energy, gain weight. Sounf familiar?Took dothepin for FMS for a few years and it does help after a month or so. Just keep the dose low 25mg pd tops. Hang in there - been that way for 20 years now.
