I am 27 years old but I have had fibro for a looooooong time so I know my body and I know my spectrum. I recently reported some unusual symptoms and was sent to the hospital.
The Dr (junior) did the old touch your nose touch your toes test and sent me home stating that it was a new symptom (I rarely go to drs/hospital because this tends to be the answer) But I was having problems breathing and had tingling around my mouth and a numbness right down my arm so thought that it would be best to get it checked.
As with everything else I learnt to live with this then I mentioned it to my physio and she has ran some tests - I am running on reduced oxygen because of a problem with the muscles in my diaphragm being restricted hence my 6 week flare up!!! She is starting to reverse this but can't do it too quick as I would overdose on oxygen.
Anyhow, this is one my stories but what really scares me is my eldery aunt - 86 has lived with lupus and fibro all of her life. She started reporting new symptoms the back end of last year and they kept sending her away stating it was the lupus and fibro. She died last week of undiagnosed cancer - I am now scared that this happens to me and up until now I have remained pretty sound of mind bar the odd down day
