Hi to everyone - another newbie!

Postby bumcake » Mon Feb 07, 2011 5:09 pm

Hi, just thought I'd pop in and say hello to you all. I have been diagnosed last week, and suddenly its like all the jigsaw pieces of weird and diverse symptoms fit together now! Have spent a long long time dealing with headaches, memory problems, sensitivites to sunlight/loud noises/clothes, IBS, arthritis, strength loss etc etc etc, and finally bit the bullet and gave my rheumy a full list of symptoms, having carried around a notebook to jot them down as they happened. Even tho it was a long list and I thought she'd probably laugh at me, I was just in that 'dont care anymore' mood. So now I have 15 tender points and another docs appt on the 15th. Now please be frank and tell me what you think, but I have noticed extra things are happening....... vision blurring, muscle spasms, more pain more often more places, racing brain in bed, losing strength opening bottles/door handles etc, sudden urgent desperate need to wee, restless legs getting worse. (The list goes on)
Does anyone think its because I now that I have a diagnosis that I'm taking notice of my body, or is this just a touch of hypochondria setting in?? it all seems to have got ALOT worse in a short time. Any help you can give would be really appreciated, as I'm feeling a bit lost and don't know what to do for the best.
Thanks in advance

Hi Bumcake, and :welcome: to the forum, sorry you have FM but glad you've found us. I think its the FM showing its face and you noticing things knowing what they are I do think that once you have a diagnosis you become much more aware :hugs: :hugs:

thanks for the replies so far.
My hubby calls me bumcake because, so he says, 'its a lovely bum and I want to eat it'. Now personally I think thats bordering on naughtiness, but while ever he cheers me up, it'll do for me!!

Don't think its hypochon***** :nono: :lol: it's probably you becoming aware of things. From diagnosis in April I was using a wheelchair by Aug/sept I went down so rapidly and couldn't understand why when others didn't seem to. For me it was due to chronic lung desease i'd been diagnosed with the Dec before as apparently there is a link between having them both and a fast decline. So please don't think it's hypochondria and don't let others get away with telling you that either :!:
