Your question about fibro coming and going. I've had CFS or Fibro for at least 10-12 years, I think it might have been longer but I don't have any medical proof of that. Anyway, I've had "good years'" & "bad years". For a while I felt so good that I thought it was all a mistake or I got over it, until the past year or so. When I finally had time to sit back and really think about how I've felt for the past several years. I can say I didn't have a bad flare, but I wasn't as "healthy" as everyone else. I had lots of times when I was experiencing pain and fatigue but I would attribute it to lifting something too heavy or doing too much physical exercise or stress. I think I was in denial. What I've found out since then is.. the stuff I was doing wasn't too excessive and shouldn't have created so much pain and fatigue. I've had this so long.. I don't know what "normal" feels like anymore.
I'm glad you're getting all of the proper tests done. And as LeeAnn said, be sure to be tested for Lyme Disease. Fibro and Lyme have a lot of symptoms in common.
Please feel free to come back, as questions and get to know your fibro friends and family.
