Welcome to the board!
Alot of your symptoms do sound like Fibro, but it is always good to get tests to rule everything else out. It is good that you will be seeing a Rheumatologist soon. I love my Rheumy and I finally started getting things done with him. At least you will be able to find out for sure what is going on with you and maybe get some meds to help you get thru it.
You have your hands full with 2 little boys. Take care and try not to over do. Keep us posted on your Rheumy appt. Good luck!
Never regret something that made you smile!

Hi jstoops and Welcome-
Alot of your symptoms sound like mine. Trouble swallowing, feet/hands/arms going numb, never feeling rested, neck/shoulder pain, etc. etc. Sounds like you have a great Dr. and she is being very thorough. And a couple referrals on the rheumy tells me he/she is good also. Let us know how the appointment goes, and do you have a list of everything you want to talk to him/her about? That does help. I forget things if I don't have it written down.
Keep us posted and it was nice to meet you!
