Nice to meet you!! And welcome to the Forum!!
Geeez, sounds like you have a lot on your plate!! I can't tell you whether or not you have fibro... but its possible. A lot of us around here had it forever before we found out what was going on. I have a lot of problems with my hands and feet.. so that's one of the bizillion symptoms. But since there are so many things that could be wrong.. go check out the second thread on the forum called Fibro 101. Theres a link on there called "what else could it be" that might help you .. along with lots of other links that can help you cope with fibro if that's what it turns out to be. Some things on there are just all around good things to know when you're suffering from chronic pain. There's a chronic pain forum too.. that a good one too.. but I love my fibro forum!!!
Anyway... welcome to the family.. this is a great place to learn more about life with fibro..whether you've been dx'd yet or not.
Keep in touch and let us know how you're doing.
Hi KelBel and Welcome-
I know it's scary when you are not sure what is going on and all the funky symptoms. I hope they can get this figured out for you soon. I do have fibro and I have a lot of trouble with my hands/arms, legs/feet going numb. In fact last winter at this time, my fibro symptoms started. I was at a mall with my sister and my left foot kept going numb. I even mentioned it to her because I thought it was so weird.
A slew of other symptoms followed not long after that, the left side of my face went numb, my lips and tongue. Then small muscle twitches around my eyes and lips and then it moved to my entire body. Then I got depression and then came the pain!! I could not move from the fatigue and the pain. If I moved 5 ft. the pain would knock me to my knees. Because of being hit so hard, they were able to diagnose me quickly. I feel bad for so many out there reading their posts and how long it takes to get a diagnosis somtimes!
Sounds like they are getting it narrowed down for you- and that your Dr. suspects it could be fibro. Keep us posted!
