Hi IcklePrincess92

I am so sorry to read that you are suffering i this way, and I would recommend anyone with new pain or a prolonged pain to discuss it with their GP or Medical Specialist just to have other things ruled out, as we cannot assume every pain is caused by Fibro?

I want to wish you all the best of luck in finding the answers that you so desperately desire and deserve.

All my hopes and dreams for you

I get the shakiness too, and the weakness and vision problems. My doctor thinks my vision could be from the tension I have in my neck, head and shoulders. The weakness and shaking for me is a lack of protein in my diet. But recently I just don't care for meat, and forget Tofu....yuck. Hope this help's. Have you changed med's lately? They can cause major reactions. You should see your doctor honey to see if everything is as good as it gets, and it's not something unrelated to the fibro. Best of luck, and hope you have a very Merry Christmas!!! xxx Mitzi


thanks guys this helped alot, im seeing my physio on tomorrow as cant get a doctors appointment till after christmas


Also see an eye doctor too about the blurriness - I did and they found I had acute angle closure glaucoma and was at risk of going blind. They had to burn a hole in my irises with a laser to help with drainage. The eye issue (if it is that rather than fibro caused) is an emergency. They got me in 9.30 the next morning when I only phoned them at 4.30 for an appointment. You don't hav wait on your regular doctor to get that scheduled, it needs an optician to diagnose anyway, your doctor's eye chart can't.
