Hi all, brand new to this place, but have a few questions. I over the past year or two have noticed increased pain and tenderness in various parts of my body, not necessarily excruciating until recently......my right arm, mainly bicep and shoulder, and at times my forearm. My sleep is completely messed up, it takes me forever to fall asleep, and I wake up it seems like every hour or two, sometimes woken by pain, other times I just wake up for nothing. I do experience cluster type headaches and occasionally I have very stiff and painful neck, right below the back of my head. My arm and shoulder hurt so much, i have to lift my right arm with my left just to pick objects up. I've had hubby massage it, and it causes a deeper and sometimes burning pain?
I also seem to be having trouble with my eyes, they water like a faucet when i am outside and it's cold and windy, to the point that i can't see, it's embarrassing as i have had people ask if i'm ok because they think I am crying, LOL I came to this board after doing a pain assessment on online, everytime i did one it pointed to fibro.....I also had diagnosis of endometriosis about
15 years ago, and have had two LAPs done, is this something that can set it off? I am 47 years old btw and wonder if menopause is a trigger, and one more thing, LOL sorry for such a long post......a year ago i fell down my stairs and cracked my left rib, not sure if that can set things in motion either.........please anyone's input is greatly appreciated, am seeing my doc next week and would like some advice on what questions I can ask him.
