I am new here.
I am currently going through the process of trying to determine if I have Fibro or Hypothyroid. My symptoms are:
Sleep disturbances (but generally get 6 hours sleep). Sometimes restless legs
Body aches and pains - thighs/calves/hips/hand. No pain in back or neck.
Heightened sensitivity to touch - e.g. leaning on a door hurts or resting my arms on a table hurts.
Lightheadedness /general feeling of being unwell
Pressing sensation in temple/head
An element of fatigue - this is an interesting one as this is not chronic and some days I don't really have any fatigue.
I find that my symptoms come and go to the extent that some days they are barely noticeable. Part of me thinks that this is not true Fibro?
The lack of severe fatigue - again this does not seem to be true fibro?
A rheumatologist did a quick tender point test but he only did two tender points -my gut feel is that I would have very low tender points (and maybe zero).
I feel like my symptoms are lighter than many people (although they certainly have a significant impact).
All comments gratefully received and Happy Easter!
