Hi there, really need advice on Fribromylagia.
I was diagnosed with this conditon last year after complaining for a year prior to that about my pain in my back/hip which was also effecting my ribs & my muscles aching all the time, but am really baffled & I am wondering if this Fibrmylagia.
I have read up on the condition & cannot find a couple of the symptoms I am experiencing.
1)For the past couple of months I have started to itch like made on many parts of my body, the face being the worse. There is no rashes what so ever & it seems to attack really bad at times where sometimes I also do experience a electric shock kind of pain with itchness on the same spot, There are times I am alright. It has got to the stage where I am even scratching whilst I'm asleep which is effecting my husbands sleep. I have noticed though when I have a mad itch attack, my heels start to really throb & my back/hip starts hurting again.
2)I am also experiencing my body needs to have a very good long stretch, about 2-4 times in the day, which at times feels good but also feels horrible, (if that makes sense?)
3)Also my balance is really bad, Went to the doctors who even said my balance was poor. Gave me some tablets,these did not work) went back saying they had not work, gave me a different tablet to take (these did not work either).
4) I have got slight athritis in both hands, I have had loads of blood work, the last being about 8months ago.The only test that came out positive, was the HLA-B27, but my doctor said you can have a positve result but this test does not say you have Ankylosing Spondylitis, many have positve results but never suffer with this condition. Have had a MRI scan on pelvic/lower back, nothing found.
Can anymore please advice me who also suffers with Fibromylagia if this is part of the condition as am quite confused, especially as well when I hear many suffer with extreme tiredness, yes at times I do get extreme tiredness, not that frequent. If anything my body feels extreme tiredness nearly everyday not my mind, I can stay up to about 2 in the morning, & still get up early.
Thank-you in advance for any advice received!!!!
