I wish I could; I wish it were that simple. I've always been a positive person with lots of energy. That sure has changed! Things have been getting steadily worse over the past few months. All I want to do is sleep...I can't begin to explain the fatigue. Most of the time I feel like I have cement blocks tied to my arms and feet. I'm also having trouble with balance (no dizziness--my legs just "give out" on me). Other symptoms include: blurred vision, headaches, weight gain, chronic hives, numbness and tingling sensations in bottom of feet, muscle cramps (mostly at night), muscle stiffness...I think I'll stop here. I might get slightly depressed reading my own symptoms if I'm not careful! HA! I've already been diagnosed with a thyroid condition and Sjogren's. Local drs did an MRI last month to check for MS but no lesions were evident. Have an appointment with rheumatologist in Atlanta next month. I'm thinking fibromyalgia. I'm to the point where I just want to know.
