Hi everyone. I have recently been diagnosed as having fibromyalgia, but reckon I have been suffering from it for a few years prior to this. I have a number of other health conditions too so have always attributed any pain, tiredness, forgetfulness to them and the drugs I'm already on. Just thought I'd run something by you all and see if anyone can give me some advice. I've been having a lot of pain in my upper arms and am finding it difficult to lift anything; even picking up a cup of tea is difficult. Over the past week it has been getting worse and travelling down my arms, with tingling and sort of numbness in my fingers. I'm finding if I do 'too much' it gets a lot worse - I was slicing very soft, uncooked meat yesterday and was in a lot of pain all day afterwards. I can't get comfortable in bed at night and probably only got about 2 hours sleep last night because of the pain. Is this a common symptom of fibromyalgia? I don't want to keep running to my GP every time I feel something which I think is a problem.
