Hey everyone,
 I went to doctor today and she said my bloodwork showed hypothyoridism. Does that have anything to do with fibro? She also said my sugar was elavated. These are new things for me. I have been tested for thyroid many times before and always came back fine. I have been feeling sick for several weeks and she said that I showed that I had a reacurrance of mono. I had mono as a teen im now 35. So that my explain why I have felt so bad lately. Also I woke up in pain on my right side from upper ribcage breastbone down to where appendix is. I have had alot of pain. I went to ER yesterday and they ran lots of test and dont think its my appendix and gave me stong pain shots and sent me home. I went to my doc today and they are sending me to have test for gall bladder. Please say prayer that that is the problem so they can fix it. I want to stop hurting. Seems like one thing or the other have been going wrong after the other. Is this the way fibro goes??? Thanks for any reply's and for listening!

Hi Poco, I don't know much about fibromyalgia but I do know that hypothyroidism can cause a whole host of issues, including fatigue...is your doctor going to treat you with synthetic thyroid hormone?  What about a fasting glucose test? 
My goodness, you are on a ton of meds...I wonder if the combination of medications has anything to do with your current symptoms?
