SE sis, hi, I am Kathy, I hate to be the bearer of not so good news, but I think when you have had particularly a major one, it effects the entire body.
I dont know if there has been any kind of study on this, but it seems to me just looking at different peoples profiles, most all of us have fybromyalgia (I know I spelled that wrong sorry), but it looks like fybro is almost brought on by other areas that have been heavily impacted.
So you might want to express to your dr. next time you see them, the test for fybro is relatively easy. Its certainly worth looking into.
In the mean time, hope you will be feeling better soon. Many prayers and hopes for you having low pain days.
