Don't think I have fibro but doc does going to see a rheumatologist now what do they do?

I just have mild pains only had severe back pain but everyday theres a new ache or pain and so tired loads of weird symptoms my eyes are burning headaches. Feel like I do have fibro fog. But I'm mainly worried what's going on in my head had burning pains a few weeks back but they've gone now but still get a electric shock pain now and then just feels so exhausted with it all and want to know what's going on 😣😢

Your doc might be right

Hi Ashley,

A rheumatologist will ask you what all your symptoms are - it might be a good idea to make a list so you don't forget anything. They may want blood tests and x rays/scans done, as they usually want to rule out any other causes for your symptoms, before diagnosing fibro. Don't worry, as it's nothing to be alarmed about.

Good luck x

Because I'm not in loads of pain all the time have all the other symptoms like rib pain, head pains, pins and needles, the bottom of my Back feels bruised and get a bubbling feeling under my left chest area and have got progressively worse I've caught my sons flu and it's knocked me for 6. The head stuff scares me like head pains now and then. Also have had bad hip pain and upper back pain like crushing pain. Just worried cause I don't feel like myself anymore and don't know if I'm going to recover from this illness but no one believes me. It's everyday too. What's your symptoms Danielle Gemma?
