hi ! I was wondering if anyone could give a diffinative list of symptoms? I live in a place where doctors are really bad, and the good ones are completely booked till the next year.You don't trust just anyone here:eek: . We are trying to move to get to a better place and better health care, but meanwhile, I suffer from fatigue, stomach issues, severe bloating, bad memory, I have had to give up wheat, corn , beans and rice ( they all liked ta killed me!) basically feel like I have the flu all the darn time.I have lost muscle strength and my endurance is toast. I also have hot and cold flashes at times, like I am running a fever, and then so cold I can;t get warm. Is this part of it too?:confused: How do you know that you just don't have something else? Are there any red flags?
I am a massage therapist and have worked on fibromyalgia patients in the past. They all have different symptoms, some more severe than others, is there a way to know for sure? Maybe then I could start self medicating, herbs etc?Is there anything to stay away from?
yikes and away,
Smig
