Hello,

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Auto-Immune Chronic Fatigue, as well as Depression and Generalized Anxiety in Dec. 2008.

Since my diagnosis I have tried several medications and have not had much relief, but my main problem is lingering symptoms and a few new symptoms:

Clammy, cold sweats all over my body at all different times of day and night
High pulse but relatively normal blood pressure
Headaches - usually just a dull ache
Unable to lose weight (198 at 5'8" but never gained a pound until around the time of my fibro dianosis - always stayed around 150. I work out when I can, at least walking and eat really well, so this makes no sense)

Several doctors have thought I was a perfect thyroid case (excessive facial hair growth, weight gain, etc) but multiple tests, including ultrasound have come back normal.

Please help me get some help figuring this out - my doctor's next thought is an endocrine problem.

Thanks so much

  • Have you had your estrogen checked? I had the body aches like Fibomyaliga and depression and anxiety bad for a few years until I realized I was going through the change and tried different HRT and found a good blend of creams and gels from a compound pharamcy and now I am off my ativan and my body aches are not as bad.. I also was cold or hot flashes.. I wish you GOOD LUCKHello, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Auto-Immune Chronic Fatigue, as well as Depression and Generalized Anxiety in Dec. 2008.
