Hi, I've just had the results back from a battery of tests carried out by the hospital after my fibro symptoms of 4 years suddenly developed over the last 12 months. Muscle pain moved to joints, particularly wrists (carpal tunnel), base of thumbs, hips, knees, ankles and feet and pain worse AFTER rest. Hair loss, skin rashes, sores and blistering, Raynauds in both hands, blue feet, pins and needles and numbness, raised lymph nodes, in addition I was found to have moderate degeneration of both hips and needed arthroscopies for labrum tears, and a routine eye test showed significant lattice degeneration of retina where there was none 12 months ago, and I don't have short-sightedness. I was also hospitalised with aseptic meningitis/encephalitis, and kidney failure. All recent tests came back as normal. Soooo....treatment remains the same. Duloxetine, anti-inflammatories, tramadol and cocodamol. I feel like I'm falling to pieces and I'm very low, and I've had to give up my career as a lawyer because I am too disabled now. I'm 37. I'm sure there are many of you in the same boat, I just wondered if these new symptoms are relatively common with Fibro as they aren't ones which appear in website lists, but I thought maybe actual real live sufferers may know more. Thanks for listening if you've got this far, I've bored myself! Snore xx
