| Hi, Holly, and welcome! Your headaches sound quite painful. I don't get this with fibro but some members have had problems with headaches. If you go to the Google Custom search at the top of the forum and type in "Fibro headaches" a ton of posts dealing with this issue will pop up. I did try putting the link in this post but it expanded the thread so you couldn't read it. Anyway, this should give you a good idea as to what our members deal with when it comes to headaches.|
You might want to see a board certified rheumatologist to get a correct diagnosis though. You see, there are other illnesses that have many of the same symptoms as fibromyalgia and they need to be ruled out...things like Lyme disease and lupus. The treatment for these is different than for fibro. There isn't a good test for fibro so this needs to be done.
Meanwhile, read Fibro 101...the first thread on the forum. There are links to good info about fibro and you will learn a lot about this illness there. You just might see yourself.
Do let us know how you are doing because we do care about you. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. Hope to hear more from you soon.
