That's what my common sense told me but just checking since my doc blames everything on the fibro. I have a low grade fever everyday and my white count stays between 16,000 and 20,000 for over a year now. I feel sicker and sicker everyday. My lungs/ breathing are so bad now that I fell into a coma last year for 12 days. They had me on IV antibiotics when I was in the hospital so of course the wbc came down but as soon as I was back home and off the antibiotics the count went right back up. I live in a small town in AZ and it just doesn't seem like anyone cares to find out whats wrong with me except to say "You have fibromyalgia, get lots of exercise and find ways to deal with the pain". Exercise!?! Sometimes I think the effort it takes to get to the bathroom will kill me!!! I went to my daughters school concert the other night and collapsed on the way into the auditorium. I was so humiliated and I know my kids must have been too. I have started with a HORRIBLE strange sensation in my arms, hands and legs and they are very very weak, much worse on the left side, so I keep falling and dropping everything. I don't know, I'm just so confused!!! I'm sick of being sick and my kids are sick of me being sick. My youngest son (13 y.o.) just left me to go live with his dad in another state because "I don't take them anywhere or do anything fun out of the house". I really do try my best but I can't drive and we live in the middle of nowhere. GOD I am feeling so lost and confused and hurt. I miss my baby boy, but can understand him not wanting to be around me anymore. I don't even want to be around me anymore! I have an appointment with a lung doc tomorrow because my IGE level is 2000 and my gp says it is suppose to be under 100. So lets see if tomorrow brings any answers. Sorry for going on and on. I have no one to talk to and sometimes its hard keeping it all in my head. Thanks for letting me vent!
