Hi I'm literally brand new to this site and after some advise. Cloudgirl41 I totally understand how you feel and can relate so much even tho I haven't been diagnosed YET! With fibromyalgia the more I read about it the more I believe its the condition I've got.long story short for over a year on and off I have been getting a dull aching sensation under my left nipple and severe pain under my left shoulder blade.but from June the 3rd this year I woke up with these symptoms and the have never left me to date and have made me unable to go about my daily activities work etc. Since June I have also had 12 attacks by which I mean I suddenly become more unwell than normal the pain in my chest gets really tight the pain in my shoulder becomes unbearable sharp pains across my chest,neck pain,throat pain,really hot and clammy,fever like,can't keep my legs still,left arm feels really heavy. And I don't always get the same symptoms every attack!..oh and waking up in the middle of the night sweating has become normal to me now. I haven't worked now since may in fact I don't leave the house anymore unless I'm goin to the hospital which I have been to 12 times and every time I have been told different things.at first I was told I had pericarditis and put on anti inflamatories I have also been told it was just a case of overheating.some times Im sure they think I am making it up and like having days out at the hospital. Bloods and X-Ray's have been done on every occasion and came back ok.At one point I was put on steroids to treat pericarditis.it was only on the second to last trip to the hospital fibromyalgia was mentioned.i am having an mri tomorrow and have had an eco off my heart which was fine.it has totally crushed me I was a highly active outgoing type of person until May this year.now I am a nervous reck! Does anybody else have similar symptoms? I've give up on the nhs just hope my mri shows something/anything as I just want to be well and able now.....
