Hi, Rob, and welcome! Yes, these sound like fibro symptoms BUT there are several illnesses that have the same symptoms. It's important to have tests run to rule out the other illnesses. Then you will definitely know it's fibro.
Check out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum. You will find links to good info about fibro including one called What Else Could It Be. You will learn a lot and this could help you ask good questions when you see your doctor.
Many with fibro use a rheumatologist. I use a board certified Internist. I see you are going to see a neurologist and some see them, too. Just make sure your doctor believes in fibromyalgia. There are still some out there that don't.
I'm so glad you found us and joined it. Please let us know how your appointment goes and what you find out. Don't hesitate to ask questions, too. We are here for that reason! I hope to hear more from you soon.
Hi there Rob!!
Just wanted to pop in and say welcome to the Forum!!! This is a great place to learn more about Fibro.
Sherrine, one of our awesome moderators, has given you some great advice, along with the rest of the folks that you've met already!!
I can totally relate to that eye twitch thing.. WOW can that be annoying.. I had it so bad at one time and it lasted for what felt like forever, it gave me a headache that wouldn't quit. Fasciculations is really annoying and can turn into a painful spasm after a while.
I really hope you don't have fibro, but only your doctor can tell for sure. If you have the energy and strength to work out alot you might not, it could be a bunch of other things.. sometime stress can create some simalar symptoms.
Good luck at the doctor and let us know how you're doing.

Hi Rob and Welcome!
Sounds like alot of fibro symptoms, I too get the muscle twitches on and off. When I first got fibro, every muscle in my body was twitching from head to toe and it lasted for about 3 months. Now its once in awhile, thank god because that was SO annoying!
Nice to meet you and let us know how your appt. goes with the neurologist-
