Does anyone else ever think that they are going crazy? I have no idea if fibro causes neurological problems, but I've been having a lot of them, lately. BTW-I know that neuro problems are common in people with lupus, but since I still don't know if I have lupus, I thought I'd ask about neuro issues & fibro.
My symptoms include "migraine" headaches. I don't really know if they are actual migraines, but I get horrible pain in my head, and then I see bright spots. I also am losing my balance a lot-just sort of tipping over when I'm not even moving. But, the thing that is really bothering me is my memory problems. I've always considered myself to have a really good memory, but lately, I feel like I can't remember anything. I find myself not remembering the easiest things-like, what channel a certain show is on, or even the name of the show-and believe me, I am a TV junkie. I forget other things, too. When I'm writing or talking, sometimes I can't think of the word I'm trying to say. Also, I scared myself this AM because I momentarily forgot that a green light means "go" and not "stop." Yes, I stopped at a green light. I'm just glad I didn't go at a red light. Also, this AM, I spent about 30 seconds trying to open my car door with my house key. FYI-not only are they 2 different sizes, they are 2 different colors!
I know all of these things sound funny, but they are freaking me out. I've been told that it's fibro fog or it's because I'm getting older. But, I really am scared. This has been going on for at least 6 months. BTW-I have a lot of other "symptoms," but I didn't want to go into everything.
Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone had anything similar happen to them, and/or if you have any advice for me. I really am starting to worry that there is something wrong.

Zoloft & methadone (NOT for pain) for sanity-which doesn't help, BTW
