Meggie, with what you described, I think its possible you are in the beginnings of a flare- I used to have just what you describe, they seemed to all pound me at once and I was flustered, frustrated, and severely out of whack. I don't know what type of tests you have had. I would suggest a CBC with all the tests that come with that- SED rate, ANA, etc. It could be that these tests indicate inflammation, or lack of inflammation- the results may lead a doc in a specific direction and help with meds. You may have already done these things :) I did this type of investigation when I was first sick with no answers from lots of docs. To me FM has been like a huge zigsaw puzzle with some of the pieces missing and those pieces that were there, doctors disputed if they really existed, or if I were imagining them LOL I suggest that you get a small notebook and begin jotting down all the things that bother you throughout the day- after a few days, look for patterns to emerge- for example one pattern that I found was everyday around 4pm I felt feverish, my lips itched, and my ears burned and turned bright hot red. Take this with you to your doc appts and this will help you be more specific answering their questions. Again, in mu experience, being able to have a discussions with the doc about specific symptoms helped the docs take me more seriously and find treatment options quicker. Good luck!
