Hi! I was finally OFFICIALLY dx'd with fibro, cfs and cebv in June this year. It took going to a good, knowledgable rheumatologist who ordered more specialized testing to rule out other diseases or conditions that may have been causing all my symptoms. There is no single definitive test for fibro or cfs so a diagnosis is delivered only after other possibilities are ruled out. I've experienced all of those symptoms you've mentioned above and I know from experience it can be so exasperating and frustrating to have so many questions and so few answers. I've also been dx'd with hypothyroid, high blood pressure, heart arrythmia and testosterone deficiency at one point in time or another.....all possible sources of at least some of those symptoms.....and take meds to keep all that fun stuff under control. Even with the meds, the symptoms still continued making a visit to a specialist - a rheumatologist referred by my PCP - absolutely necessary for much more in-depth testing. Before seeing her, all of my tests run by my pcp were normal as well.....the tests she ran showed some indicators for the diagnoses I received. CFS and fibro have so many symptoms that mimic other diseases and conditions that it may seem like you are looking for the proverbial "needle in a haystack".
Hang in there and try not to get discouraged.....it might take a little more time and it may take going to a larger city (maybe Biloxi or another larger city) to find the right doctor to give the proper diagnosis and treatment. Good luck to you and please let us know how this is progressing.
Gentlest of hugs,
Dx'd June 2008 with Fibromyalgia & CFS possibly caused by chronic Epstein-Barr virus (many years of ongoing symptoms.....recently worsening)......also, previously dx'd sleep apnea, high blood pressure, hypothyroid, low testosterone, high cholesterol, heart arrythmia & headaches (all types)
Several meds too numerous to list or remember!
