I was wrongly diagnosed with fibromyalgia circa May 2015 and it's easy to see why. I ticked every box. However I was unhappy with the diagnosis from the outset and so I made a nuisance of myself and only this last month have found the last piece of the jigsaw. What is really wrong with me is OA and that was compounded by a long standing dental infection which has remained undetected for 5 years! My jaw neck and shoulders had hurt for as long as I can remember and it felt like I had a knitting needle lodged in there. I appeared to have IBS. I had no energy and was very sensitive to the cold in particular; in fact my bodies perception of temperature was all over the place and i was always inappropriately hot and cold. I have had countless blood and other tests and the infection was not detected despite my insistence that I had one.
I was at my dentist yesterday and she told me that in between my visits she had treated another patient she also understood to have fibro. In common with myself this patient had an undetected infection which was producing very similar symptoms to mine. Also in common with me, following dental treatment this other patient has made a complete recovery and is no longer thought to have fibro.
Does this resonate with anyone else here?
