Concerned

I am going back to the doctors soon so I will ask there obviously. But I have some symptoms which I am not sure are fibro related and I seem to be getting progressively worse. Fibro isn't progressive is it?
The symptoms I get
Brain fog
Pain for apparently no reason
Exhaustion especially after exercise
Shaky and feel like lack of sugar but sugar doesn't fix
Weakness to the point my legs won't hold me up
Feel more tired when I wake up than before I went to sleep
Constant horrendous headaches
Slurring speech and saying wrong words or things backwards
No attention span
Takes me forever to learn something new (although I've always been quick to learn before)
Eyesight seems to have worsened sometimes can't focus my eyes
Parts of body goes numb
Struggle to swallow food gets stuck in my throat
Keep biting the inside of my mouth to the point I make my mouth bleed(without meaning to)
Sometimes I can't get my body to do what I want such as holding onto an item (my hand will just let go)
Terrible short term memory
Not quite as bad but still bad long term memory

I think that's everything... I'm sure I'll remember something else.

Have you been told you aso have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? these tend to go hand in hand together and alot of those symptoms do sound like fibro but also that of chronic fatigue and Yes I feel fibro does get worse. In my case it has and hundreds more I have either read or know of...

Although to be safe and as a precaution If you feel things are not right always seek medical advice as fibro can mimick that of other illnesses.
