ok here's whats going on, I have something because a person don't feel this way and are normal. anyway i was ruled out for MS and Lymes diease and Lupus, now i go to a rumatoligist on the 6th of next month.
i think i almost definitally have Fibro, i have pain in all the extremeties that are familliar with Fibro and was put on prozac,cymbalta,and nurotin and hopefully the meds will somewhat calm my pain down to a small roar.
I have files for disability and got denied so i appealed it and im waiting to hear back from that, i also got an attorney for when i get turned down for my appeal, i can not work any longer with this pain i have and my brain fog is so bad it's to where i get in my car and forget where im going and can't remember what  i did from one day to the next.
it has also affected my eyes, and i can't drive at night time at all because i just can't see, the doctor said i have optic nuritis and it's caused from the fibro. i keep a headach and was put on mierapex also today.
im so tired i cant get out of my own way, and when i do go to bed and wake up im more tired when i get up then before i went to bed, and i can not tolerate heat of any kind so im loving this time of year because its cold.
does this make sence to anybody here? thanks for any advice.

Gosh Summer,
We aren't doctors and we can't diagnose but your pain sounds a bit like fibro. Some of us can't stand the cold, others wilt in the heat. Hope you get some relief soon.

Hi, Summer!  Have you checked out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum?  There are links to good information about fibromyalgia, including a list of symptoms.  Start reading and  you might see similarities there. 
I don't like heat or cold.  It has to be perfect weather for it not to bother me.  My pain increases when there are barometric pressure when storms are coming.  Most of us have back, shoulder and neck pain, too.  Of course the fog and the fatigue are part of it, too.  But, if you familiarize yourself with fibro, you will have some good questions to ask your doctor.

Hi Summer,

I do hope you find some answers at the rheumatology office. That is often where a doctor will send you when they are considering a fibro diagnosis. If I were you I'd just carry on 'as if' you had fibro because all we do is work on lessening the pain. Except for prescriptions this is a self-help disorder. Getting enough sleep, naps/rests during the day if you can, keep your muscles warm and no shocking the system, and pamper yourself every day.;-) That last one isn't official but it's on MY list. Being good to yourself by not over doing it is right up on top of the Fibro Feel Better list. If you want to see an example of what NOT to do, them come on over and follow me around for a day. I keep trying to live like was was 20 years younger and didn't have fibro, but I'm trying...I really am.

Good luck and keep us posted.
