Hi,
 
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in April 2006. I have had many of the symptoms since my childhood but the pain and fatique began late 2005. Lately I have been feeling alot worse and I now wonder if I also have Chronic Fatique Syndrome.  How do folks get that diagnosed as many of the symptoms are the same.
 
Thanks,

well first of your doctor must rule out other diseases, fatigue and pain can be symptoms of a lot of other conditions. An example would be Lyme disease. It can cause bith symptoms you describe.

SO really you need to find a good doctor.



best of luck,

Thanks very much.
 
I am off to see the specialist who diagnosed me with Fibro. He did all of the initial bloodwork etc. to rule out other ailments before was dx with Fibro.  Today however I was diagnosed with depression...lucky me.

Hi,
 
Thanks so much for your reply. I actually feel a bit better. I am going to guess that it is the Vitamin D and not the new anti- depressant as I think it would take longer to work???  So far I have not had any side effects from the Prestiq. One is nausea and I remembered that I had some gravol from a previous med that caused nausea so I take one before the Prestiq and so far so good.
 
I see the doctor again next Tuesday and I would guess she may keep the Vitamin D at 4000 units until my next blood work.
