Ed, you had this post "buried" in a new member's thread.  I took it out of there and started this post so people will see it and respond.  I hope you get some help.  That hasn't happened to me and I think I'd talk to the doctor about that.  If you do, let us know what you find out.  We really do care about you.

Hi Ed,

I actually do have problems with motor control of my hands and arms, especially dropping things and knocking things over. Also, when I type I no longer can type quickly and accurately, because my fingers seem to have a mind of their own. I'm constantly having to correct mistakes that I never would have made before. It feels like when I tell my fingers to hit the key for ``a'' they disobey and hit ``s'' instead.

These are not normal fibro symptoms, but rather neurological symptoms that indicate probable autoimmune attack on the central nervous system (CNS). If you have fibro it's very likely that you have one or more autoimmune diseases as well. Well, this is true for women anyway; men are less likely to have autoimmune diseases. There are many different AI diseases that can attack the CNS: celiac disease, lupus, and multiple sclerosis are three of the biggest culprits.

I have two of the big three and my rheumy thinks that I have CNS lupus....I'm being tested for it right now.

If you can, you should consult a neurologist as soon as possible.

Good luck to you! Keep us posted!

P.S. There are other things besides AI diseases that can cause neuro symptoms too, of course, which is why I recommended a neurologist.

Yes...sometimes I have a hard time holding on to my cigarette. That is a big concern of mine. My fingers feel weak. Typing for me also...I type slower and still sometimes have typos.
