In the past I've had days where my body ached all over like I have the flu (no other flu symptoms) but anymore it is a daily thing, mostly in the afternoons. I also feel like I may have a low grade fever but haven't really checked it. I thought it may have been caused by my oxycontin wearing off early so a couple weeks ago I called my PM and got it ok'd to try taking it every 8 hrs. since I had some back up supply from appts being less than 30 days apart. This increase hasn't helped.
I'm not working outside the home but do the normal laundry, cooking and general house cleaning. It's just my husband and I so I'm not overwhelmed with work. Also, the aching is all over not any specific place, from the neck on down to the toes. I've always had issues with muscle spasms that no muscle relaxer has been able to control, I've tried most of them.
Any ideas would be helpful. I've been tested for RA with negative blood work results but I know that doesn't always mean it's not there in the early stages.
Sounds like me...sounds like it could be fibromyalgia. Of course I'm not a doctor but the achy flu like symptoms that feel like you have a fever is what I have almost every day. Might run it by a rheumotologist. The cold really effect fibro symptoms along with low pressure fronts that move in and out. Hope you feel better and get an answer.
