:confused: I have have been diagnosed with "fibromyalgia" since 1997. But I have all these other problems that do not add up. Right now I have a low grade fever 99.1-99.8 and my joints really hurt. My wrist, elbows, hips, knees and ankles scream the most. My legs also really hurt. They burn, throb, and are extremely painful, and if I stand on them for any length of time I am in misery. It hurts to sit and I get stiff from doing it for even a 1/2 hour. I have problems with my balance. I bruise real easy. My eyes are dry, my mouth feels like it is on fire, the doctor told me I have brisk reflexes. I have numbness and tingleing in my arms and legs but not all the time. I have a headache everyday of my life it is only a matter of how bad. There are times when I cannot get my mouth and brain to communicate, the words just will not come out. My memory is really bad. I will get a rash on my knees that is just red it last for a couple of days and then it will go away. I also will get a rash in the crook of my arms. I have skin problems ecxema on my hands. My skin is usually cracked and bleeding on my knuckles. The winter months are usually worse for me. I had "flare ups" but they have not lasted as long as this one. Every medical test I have ever had comes back negative. I get very discouraged from being in so much pain and the doctor not being able to find the cause. We moved to a small town 4 years ago. My old GP told me I would make a good project for some medical facility. I do have high blood pressure, irritable bowel syndrome, and restless leg syndrome. Right now my cholestrol is elevated and I really do not want to take anything that is going to cause my muscle to hurt worse. I took Zocor before and it was awful. Any help would be most appreciated.

  • A very large number of cases of FM are actually Lymes.The only labs that test correctly are Bowen and Igenex. Hospital tests are very poor so only get tested through the labs above. Regular docs know very little about Lyme. I suggest accessing www.lymenet.com and finding a Lyme Literate Doc in your area if you are serious about finding out.
