Had VM in Aug 2012. Since then was left with after effects such as fatigue, headaches, joint/muscle aches, memory issues (foginess), trouble concentrating, and not sure if combination of these is causing anxiety and mild depression. I was referred to rheumatologist. She gave me a pamphlet on fibromyalgia and gave me muscle relaxers and tramadol for pain. I have been reading up on fibromyalgia and the symptoms seem to be very similar. My primary Doctor, rheumatologist and neurologist don't seem to believe my symptoms are at all related to VM. I have follow up next week and I'm not sure what to believe. Can the VM cause fibromyalgia? All I know is that I didn't have these issues before VM.
