I was diagnosed last week with Fibromyalgia and Osteoarthritis. I am sure I have had both for over 20 years. I am having a lot of problems with my ankles over the past month. I went shopping a month ago, and ever since I feel like my ankles are sideways, and it's hard to walk. They also lock without warning going up and down stairs. I brought it up at my appointment, and was told to ask my GP for a ultrasound of my ankles. The dr. they sent me to was a pain specialist. I have been complaining for years that I keep getting diagnosed with syndromes, but no one seems to know what is causing them. I had a bunch of blood work, and it has all come back negative, except my LDL was a bit high. I was not put on any medications, just a follow-up in six weeks. I am concerned that the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia is just another part of the picture. I would be interested to know if anyone else has the following symptoms, or if anyone can suggest something I can bring up to my dr. to look into further or something. In my 20's I had mono, and my energy level was never the same. I was also diagnosed with the following in my 20's. Myofacial Pain Syndrome, Bilateral Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, Irritable Bowl Syndrome. Reynauld's Phenomenon, Asthma, Degenerative Disc Disease in my lumbar spine, and Rosacea. In the past month I have been diagnosed with Concreations in both eyes. (Calcium deposits), Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, and Mild Thoracic Spondylosis. I am positive the Osteoarthritis is in my back, hips, knees, fingers and ankles. My lower back has not been looked at in over 25 years, and I am concerned about the deterioration. I also spike fevers without warning. Any ideas anyone may have would be much appreciated. I was tested for other types of arthritis. I am also concerned about MS just because some of the symptoms are similar to Fibromyalgia.
