I feel like I am gonna faint. Husband checked my bp and it is normal. The right side of my face is even going numb. Chest hurts, costo. and I feel sick. Pain in joints....I just feel awful. Fibro. can really make things scary. Today I need to have a positive attitude but I feel down. Been hurting for so long now. Sorry to complain so much, just feel bad.

So sorry you are feeling so bad today. I would call your doctor and tell him/her of your symptoms. If it's fibro related, it's still good to have these things in your chart. I get dizzy/lightheaded too sometimes. I have also had numbness in areas when I'm having severe anxiety. Whatever is all going on with you needs to be checked out. You are suffering way too much.

Hi Sheila, I agree with myjoy to let your doc lnow of these new symptoms. I was having
some dizziness problems and it turned out one of my electolytes was low(potassium).
After I started drinking more OJ and eating bannanas, my level went up and the dizziness
stopped.

With the warmer weather, it is important to drink more water becuse dehydration can cause
dizziness too. Hope you feel better soon :)

Don't assume everything that happens to you is fibro related, you may have something else going on. Please talk to your dr, and if your dr blames everything on fibro find another dr. There are many other health issues that can happen to us, we are human, we are not fibro.
If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you won't.
I may not do things like other people, but I get things done in my own way, in my own time.
