Hi all,
 I want to thank you all hear at HW. Its bee such an informative and welcomeing place to be.
 I have been feeling bad for several days now. Not like my usual aches and pains. I have been sick on my stomache. How do you spell nactiues (sp?) and bad spastic dirheia. Then my ears hurt and teeth (gums). I feel bad all over. Real tired even though I take my provigil which usualy helps that. I had a bout with my tummy last week and doc thought it was virus. Now I don't think so. I go to see me GI doc next monday and my first Rhuemy visit the week after. Does anyone else have probs like this? Also, not every a.m. but some I wake up and have a visual trail when I move my hands and such. What is that about? What is that called and is it a part of fibro? It don't last long but I have never experinced it till recently. Last couple of months. Always in a.m. and only for few minutes. Weird! Any info and advice would be welcomed.
Thank you

I'm sorry your feeling so bad Poco. I've not had the vision problems you are talking about but I do have some focusing problems at times.
Sometimes it's hard to tell what is a virus or a fibro flare. I know there are times when I feel like my body is fighting off a bug but it is fibro or sjogrens I can't tell the difference. I just know I feel like dodo and hurt all over.
It will get better. We never know how long a flare will last but they do go away.
luv and hugs

Hi Poco-
I got fibro not long ago and my whole digestive system was thrown off, same symptoms as yours. I started over the counter Zantac before I could get in to see my Dr. and it settled everything down. I still take it-75mg twice a day and I have not had any problems since.
Have you had problems like this before as I see you have a GI doctor? You can put a call into your Dr's nurse and see if they can start you on something before your appt. next Monday. No need to be so miserable till then.
I do not have the visual trails you are talking about. Maybe someone will respond that has. I do get teeth pain on and off. Hope you start to feel better. GamJill

How long have you been on provigil? I tried it but got severe diahrea from it. Also sore throat and cold sores. This might be what is causing that.

Do you have flourescent lights? That could be causing you to see the trails. Other than that, I wouldn't know unless it is from medications. You said it only happens when you first get up in the morning.

If the provigil is causing these problems, maybe you could take adderall. That is what I take now and it really helps with energy.

Best wishes for a lovely day

hugs, Karen...
