Do i have fibromyalgia?

Postby xtaurusx » Tue Oct 15, 2013 11:08 am

Hi everyone.. I'm new here and signed up to this, to get other peoples opinions.
I am 22 years old, and i have Endometriosis.. But now it is believed that i might have fibromyalgia aswell. And im currently going down medical routes with my doctor to see whether it is fibro or not.
Here are my symptoms;
Severe stabbing/burning pain in my hip and legs (i have to walk with crutches)
Severe backache.
Restless Leg Syndrome.
Muscle spasms.
Very Fatigued... im so weak and knackered all day every day.
Unsettled sleep at night.
Im extremely sensitive to pain, and bruise very easy.
Being tested for IBS.
And im currently depressed too.

So, what are your opinions? As you are all sufferers its most likely that you'd have an idea.
Ask any questions too.
Thank you.

I feel for you...and at 22 what a bummer.
There is new criteria for diagnosis which i recently under went here in Exeter. This was via the Pain Management Clinic and now on the waiting list for support.

You certainly have indicators for Fibro but the diagnosis is important to get you the support you need. So keep pushing and ask to be referred to the Pain Management team for that diagnosis...and best of luck.

I am on the referral list atm to see an orthapedic (sp?) Doctor.. and pain management. Gotta wait for my appointment till i can take the further steps into a diagnosis.

It is very annoying being only 22, but since i was 14 ive suffered with severe pains, so its something im kind of used to. Its annoying not being able to do what normal 22 year olds do, and not being able to make plans cos i never know how im going to be on a day to day basis. But i guess its something i have to live with.

:welcome: to the forum taurus :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:

Sorry to hear what you've been dealing with since your teens. It is frustrating when you're unable to enjoy doing the same things as those the same age as you.

From what you have mentioned symptom~wise, it could be that you have FM. However, it could also be that you have something else as there are a number of other conditions that share the same sort of symptoms with FM, incl Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus. And I'm afraid we can't say if you have FM, or anything else as none of us are qualified to do so. The only people who can give you a definite dx are suitable healthcare professionals, such as the Orthopaedic Specialist who you will be seeing. Until then, I'm afraid you'll be living in LimboLand whilst waiting to get those answers you're looking for :( :( :( :(

Whilst your waiting for your appts, have a bit of a looky around the boards, they're packed with all sorts of info, advice and suggestions that you may find helpful in managing your symptoms :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:

Hope you get some answers soon as has been said we aren't qualified to say whether or not you have FM but we are here if and when you get a diagnosis :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:
