Hello!

I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia for over a year now but I am having trouble understanding some of my symptoms.

I am a full time student and have trouble with this because of my symptoms.

Lately I have been suffering from major chest pain that results in having to use two heating pads on the couch for hours while I cry in pain. It seems to feel best when I sit motionless. It hurts much more when I move around or breath deeply.

I have also found that my hands are freezing cold and numb. I understand that I live in Canada but in the library I have noticed that I lose all feeling in my finger tips and my hands go cold.

I do not have a positive ANA but three out of five family members (I am not included in the three) have a positive ANA and deal with autoimmune diseases.

What should I do?
