I was diagnosed nearly 2 years ago with Fibro. Many blood tests that came back fine then eventually got sent to a specialist who diagnosed Fibro. I am but not in too much pain compared to some of the messages on here (Hope that's not what I have to look forward to?)I do feel for you all. I know we are all different but does this Fibro come on slowly with most of you? Looking back about 3 years ago I suffererd with the itching on my scalp, neck and ears,but doctor gave me some special shampoo and some fungal cream for my ears but had no idea why I was itching in other area's ? It did not really work! On reading messages on here, a lot of you suffer bad with this so this could of been the start of my Fibro 3 years ago?
Have been on HRT for years tried to come off it a few times but the hot sweats came back with avengeance! So Back on it. Again after reading messages on here, a lot of you suffer with this so I am now thinking, is this part of the Fibro too? As still getting the sweats even on HRT (although not as bad as when I am on HRT)Are your night sweats just at night?
Not getting much sleep at night, tossing turning (Leg syndrome I Think) But I do not notice any pain so have no idea why I keep waking up?
Doc has put me on Amotriptoline and touch wood not having hardly any pain. It was mainly in my left arm and right down my Right leg. Have it in between my shoulder blades almost constantly but again not enough to make me winge about it. The leg and arm pain was not contant, just on and off during the day. When I am going about my day I am fine, just seems when I sit or relax, it comes on and off.
The symptoms are there but does it sound like Fibro to you? even though the specialist said it is. Or do they just put it down to this as they have no idea what causes it??
