is it possible to have fibromyalgia with limited pain? i have so many of the other symptoms but i do not notice the pain. here is the run-down of what's going on with me:
i have chronic and terrible heart burn. i have to take excessive doses of over-the-counter HB pills to quell it.
i have nightmares every time i sleep. literally. i sweat in my sleep, too.
i have various issues with sleeping, delayed sleep phases, inability to wake up, inability to sleep when i should. insomnia, super-somnia, and i do not typically function on a 24 hour schedule.
i've had upset/sick stomach my whole life.
diagnosed w/ulcers at age 9.
HIGH ANXIETY. about EVERYTHING. sometimes i get upset thinking about made-up scenarios with MADE UP PEOPLE. like i just imagine "what if this, then this--" and get really upset in a literal way.
depression. not sadness per se but very symptomatic of it. diagnosed as depressive. diagnosed as agoraphobic as well.
i have a real bad problem with motivation/fatigue. i feel tired all the time. i typically want to do things that are low-engery or 'restful'--like play online whilest laying in bed.
i get sick all the time, i have a low immune system.
i rarely feel "good."
i feel weak often (tho i'm a strong boy). i just feel limp in my muscles sometimes.
some days i cannot see very well. like more than just eyesight issues. it seems to correlate with sleeping not enough/too much--things seem blurry and i cannot focus.
i often cannot concentrate. reading actually becomes burdensome.
i get migraines a lot. this too correlates with sleeping too much or not enough.
i've been diagnosed with and have an on-going problem with low-blood sugar. i feel faint often.
i have heart arhythmia all the time for no reason. it makes me feel light headed as well as naseous sometimes.
i have TMJ-jaw problems. grinding, hurting, locking of the jaw socket.
my hip hurts often from how i lay/sleep.
i often "sleep wrong" and get pains.
my back's gone out 2 times in 3 years (i'm in my 20s!).
i get random pains from little use. like i get rotator cup pain from PAINTING. it makes me feel weak/broken.
i get knee pain now and then, as well as ankle/wrist pain.
i just dont think the "joint pain" is the over-riding symptom as much as sleep problems, stomach problems, fatigue and motivation problems.
the motivation thing is REAL BAD. i do not do as much as i want to do. i just don't have the get-up and go to do it.
could this be FIBRO?
