Hello, I am new to this page... I have seen a rheumatologist and been diagnosed with suspected Fibromyalgia ( he was patronising and treated me like I was putting it all on and it was in my head) but having tests for other conditions too and will see a neurologist soon ( have an under active thyroid and taking thyroxin)... my issues started about 1 1/2 years ago when I had a shooting pain in my right arm and it continued with added aches and pains across my chest (like someone is sitting on me) pains in my feet, ankles, hands, wrists, shoulders and back. I also get pins and needles and cramp --- bad sleep patterns, constipation and headaches... I sometimes lose my balance and people just think I am clumsy. I am a little scared it could be something that is life threatening but also worry that this is now my life and I will be in chronic pain all my life... do these symptons sound familiar? I am so tired of waking up and feeling like I have been hit by a train... how do you all cope with this?
