I am new to the community...and fibromyalgia
Have been dealing with FM for about
5 months now, and it's no fun. When my symptoms first began, I thought I was dying. I experienced tingling/burning sensations in my legs and my arm. I was back and forth from the ER to my PCP at least 2-3 times in the first 3 months only to have doctors tell me that everything was fine based on all of the blood work, x-rays, ultrasounds, CT scans that were done. But my body was saying otherwise. I experienced panic attacks and rapid weight loss from stress due to my symptoms and not knowing. It wasn't until I began to google all of my symptoms that I came across FM. I asked my doctor about
it, but he dismissed it and didn't want to diagnose me with it or treat my symtoms(I have since found a new PCP). Once I started seeing my new PCP, she prescribed me with gabapentin, although she hasn't formally diagnosed me with FM. The meds have helped out a lot, but I am still experiencing this burning, bee sting like sensation in my armpits, mostly on the right. I also notice it in my groin area and tingling down the back of my legs and knees. I check for swollen glands, but they're not swollen. This drives me a little crazy at times...is any of this familiar to you all?
