I have another question(s), thanks so much for your responses. I am so glad I found this site.
I was diagnosed last year with fms. I have tender points on my legs, and stomach. Same area on each side. I have some on my upper body, but when I look at the tender points for fibro, I don't have them all. When I touch around my joints they hurt also, esp my elbows, they never swell or become red, is this normal for fibro?...pain around joints? I have this around my knees, shoulders and wrists. My rhuem. did lab work last year and said that I don't have any inflam. disease. Now that I notice all of the tender points are the same on each side..upper and lower body. If you touch any of my muscles esp legs they are tender all over, with extremely painful tender spots. Does anyone have all of a sudden stabbing or shooting pains in different areas? For instance, I can feel these firing off all over...pains...hand then foot then thumb..leg..foot...I mean like I have a ball bouncing inside..lol. I don't have this all the time, I think when I have flareups it's worse. I want to find a new rhuem., because the one I have doesn't really believe in fibro, he told me it would be ok and I could get through this. He tried to put me on lyrica. I don't want to start meds, except for pain meds. I try to watch what I do, hot baths..showers, and learn what pushes me and try to avoid this. Some people think Im nuts not doing meds, but Im sensitive to them and I don't like side effects.
Oh well thanks for your 2 cents..lol, I really appreciate it all.
