They diagnosed me when I was 31 after I thought I was having a heart attack after dealing with the stress after my Mom died. Everything was normal. Then a couple days later the flareup started again so they then gave a full MRI/CAT of my chest/abdomen. That was normal. So they gave me the amitriptyline to sleep/relax. Going down the tender points list kind of confirmed the Fibro because they matched me almost perfectly.
They said I had IBS after I told them about
bowel issues I've had since I was a kid. I could be fine all day, than bam, I'm running to the bathroom. My brother and I refer to them as "attacks".
I'm also a "rocker" if you know what that term means, have been since I was a baby. In fact after I type a few lines of this, I stop, review what I've typed, rock a bit, and then resume.
You are right about
the face tingling being from stress/anxiety, because that's the only time I get it and I've been stressing over this for two days. Like I mentioned earlier August is a bad month, it brings up terrible memories, and I have been dealing with issues a friend has had for a month as well. Also have some very minor stuff dealing with me. Nothing serious, just an inconvenience.
I've been eating pretty healthy (and nothing between meals, a weakness for me) lately and with walking I've been losing some weight (I always drop weight in summer because I walk more), but I was bad on Friday after bowling (sweet tooth) and had a couple Hostess and MnM's, and MnM's again yesterday. I don't drink much soda. I did have two Mt. Dew's Friday. But I mostly drink water.
Rarely drink booze, and only beer when I do. I've had two beers in August.
I don't not smoke. I live in Colorado and I don't even smoke THAT. LOL
Eating isn't an issue. No loss of appetite at all. Last night I took half an imodium and a muscle relaxer and slept for almost 7 hours straight, which is good for me.
Going to try to bowl again today, I'll be back later with an update.
Thanks for all the support everyone, I've never really talked to anyone about
