Anyone here have Fibromyalgia?

I am just curious as to what your syptoms are, how you were diagnosed and how you are being treated. I have slowly been developing pain throughout my body during the last several years.. I have been reading up on this and seem to have alot of the symptoms.

  • Was born with it, was dx'd by a neurologist. Symptoms are different for each patient as are pain levels. There are just so many symptoms but some more common symptoms are

    Widespread Pain
    Morning Stiffness
    Vision Problems
    Sleep Disorders
    Urinary and Pelvic Problems
    Weight Gain
    Chronic Headaches
    Cold Symptoms
    Temperomandibular Joint Dysfunction Syndrome
    Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Syndromes
    Cognitiveor Memory Impairment
    Skin Complaints
    Chest Symptoms
    Dysmenorrhea Aggravating Factors
    Myofascial Pain
    Syndrome Muscle Twitches
    Weakness Memory Loss

    You can get testing done with a regular doc or a rheumatologist though. Since symptoms are so wide and varied, Its usually only Diagnosed after everything else has been ruled out. <

  • I just found out I have fibro last week. My symptoms are wide spread pain that moves around. I feel sick most of the time. My legs are what bother me the most but that is because I also have hypermobility joint syndrome. I am on cymbalta for now.
