Hi, Kari, and welcome! My doctor is more thorough. I was having just heart palpitations and he gave me the electorcardiogram, and echocardiogram, and ultrasound of my heart, and had me wear a monitor for 24 hours. If you don't get a decent response from your doctor, you might want to see a cardiologist. It would be very rare for a person to have heart problems at your age but it could give you peace of mind. That makes it worth it....expecially since you suffer from anxiety, too. Too many times things are blamed on fibro.
I hope you were run through a myriad of tests before you were diagnosed with fibromyalgia. You see, fibro has many of the same symptoms as other illnesses that are treated differently than fibro. There are no tests for fibro so those have to be ruled out first.
Be sure to read Fibro 101...the first thread on the forum. There are links to good info about fibro and you will learn a lot there. Good starting links are called Symptoms, What Else Could It Be, and A Thorough Explanation of Fibromyalgia. You just might see yourself there.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. Hope to hear more from you soon.
