Leg cramps pain and foot pain

Hey all I've suffered since I was a teen with muscle stiffness and pain but always in neck shoulders upper back. Now I'm 44 I'm getting terrible muscle spasms in my feet legs lower back the pain is so bad and sometimes I just can't walk! I'm on naproxen baclofen and pregablin which really helps can't move or cope with pain without this! I'm seeing chiropractor once a month I have deep tissue massage twice a month I swear by this treatment it helps so much, but finding I'm so weak lately simple tasks I'm soaking wet sweating muscles ache like crazy and I get so very tired. Seeing neurologist next week to try to shed some light on matters. I mean I used to stand up all day working 60hrs a week now hr Asda shopping I'm done in!

Hello Barbrich1972

Welcome to the forum :)

You don't say if you have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia or whether you are looking for some advice getting a diagnosis?

If you think you may have Fibro, in my opinion, you would be better seeing a Rheumatologist than a Neurologist.

Neurologists can diagnose Fibro but Rheumatologists specialise in this very debilitating illness and would identify more quickly with symptoms.

However, I am not a medical professional and just giving my own opinion.

If you take a look at our mother site you will find a list of the most common symptoms of Fibro fmauk.org

Good luck with your Neurologist appointment.

Please let us know how you get on.

Wishing you a peaceful evening
