Hi all.

I am 39 (male) live iCornwallll, Trying to find out what is wrong with me got so much going on finding it hard to come to conclusion.
Have had constant chest pain for nearly 2 years now have had several ecgs+stress test, Doctors have put it down to costochondritis + a mix of gerd+ibs, about 3 months ago was rushed to a&e with a suspected heart attack (stuck in hospital for 8 hours) was sent home with the alclear, Doctors put it down to a major panic attack (had symptoms for a few hours in the morning but shrug it of but it came back in the afternoon thats when the doc called for ambulance) have never found a true cause.

But in the last 3-4 years have been have had problems with aches and pains with my knees,ankles (left ankle constant feels tight)neck cracks constantly (have bought 10s of pillows but never sort it + one of they space age mattresses) shoulder pains, forearm,knuckles ache have had bloods done but have not shown anything, also like i said constant chest aches also get tired easy.

At the moment the doctors have me down as having panic attacwaitingaitting on a appointment to see CBT.neurologistrcauset casue my calfs are constantly spasming and have twitches in other places as well.

Does any of this sound like fibromyalgia

Hi Xtremx, its really difficult for us to say whether something sounds like fibro as the symptoms overlap so widely with so many other conditions, so yes I can empathise with some of your symptoms but not others and I think you need to keep pushing your GP for a referral to a rhuematologist for a definite diagnosis but :welcome: to the forum and we will help you as much as we can until you find out just what you are suffering with :wave: :wave:

:wave: and :welcome:

Like denys has already said, you need a specialist/rheumatologist to give a definite dx of what is causing your various symptoms. Some of what you've described could be down to FM, but then again it could be another condition with very similar symptoms that is the cause.

Keep pushing for a referral, hope you can find out what it is :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

Hi all.
Thanks for your replies. After neurologist my appointment i will be going to see my doc and asking them some questions as getting fed up with constant aches&pains and tiredness (chest muslces seem to get pulled/ache at the smallest thing just turning or leaning).

All the best
