I am sorry this may be a long post. It all started 12 years ago when I was 22, I got a really bad headache and have had it ever since. Anything sinister was ruled out. The consultant said I had chronic tension headaches. Painkillers do not help much, so I just tried to cope with it. I have always felt like I ache all over (not really painful) and that when anyone just as much as puts their finger on me it hurts. I do sleep ok (sometimes waking up in the middle of the night) but never feel refreshed in the morning. About a year ago I started to get terrible neck and shoulder pains, I find this hard to cope with on top of my headache. When I touch my head, neck or shoulder it really hurts. My legs feel restless, but the pain is nothing compared to my top half. I also often feel anxious. I had never heard of Fibromyalgis before until I searched head,neck and shoulder pain. Could I have It?
Sorry if it seems like i am rambling,this is my first ever post.
