Hi & welcome!
I have burning, tingling, pain, etc. in most parts of my body at one time or another. Your symptoms sound like Fibro, but it is always good to have a doctor rule out other things. I have also found that I sometimes get a new symptom or different pain and my Rheumatologist usually tells me it's the Fibro. You can have Fibro and not have too many problems and then one day it hits you and it is worse.
I haven't tried acupuncture, but have heard a few others on here say it has helped them. Have other tests been done to rule out other things? Now that you are having more problems it is probably good to see your doc. Maybe doc will refer you to a Rheumy.
I saw my doctor for approx. the first 6 months and then she had me see a Rheumatologist. My Rheumy ran additional tests and has really helped me with my pain & also diagnosed my Osteoarthristis & Sleep Apnea. I now see my PCP & Rheumy each about every 6 months unless I have problems before.
I hope you get to feeling better and your doctor can help answer some of your questions. Keep us up to date on what you find out. Good Luck!
Never regret something that made you smile!
Thank you soooo much for your responses. I mentioned that I don't get much time to be on my computer---but I read all of your posts and I'm so glad that you get it.
I went to the acupuncture guy on Sat. morning (last Sat.) and he did a bunch of stuff and the pain actually went away for a few days ( til Mon.) and now most of it's back. Some of it I think is sciatic nerve pain----down my leg pain. But the burning, stinging and aching behind my knee and around my waist is BACK! I'm not sure what that means---why it goes away after the acupuncture but then comes right back. Anyway, I am sorry that we all suffer from this weird condition----but I am glad that I am not alone.
Sherrine and getting by, thanks for the responses about the simvastatin. I think I really need to take it----but boy those muscle pains sure scared me. The cardio doc said that I was taking such a small dose that it probably wasn't the drug---but it sure scared me......I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet about THAT issue.
I hope you all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving---will return later to check in on everyone. :o)
