I am new to this site, so I hope I do this right.
I had an ANA titer + result from some blood work done due to muscle pain, fatigue, numbness in arms and hands, heart "flutters", feeling like my feet are cold all of the time, burning sensation in arm pits and insides of my arms and inner thighs and other areas as well, hair loss, trouble with concentration, red eyes/dry eyes, trouble sleeping .
I was sent to a specialist. He was looking for Lupus and RA, but I just got my test result yesterday from him and all of the blood work that he did came back negative. So, he sent me away with a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. Does this sound right? Should I just take this as the result and move on or should I get a second opinion. I am almost 50 and I have never been sick, except a common cold once or twice which I recover from easily in a day. I got sick about 2 months ago and I could not get rid of it and I still have mucous in the back of my throat and get a flaming sore throat every that will come on out of no where but then die down after about half a day. I had strep as a child and it feels like that is what I cam getting, but then it dies down. This is just not like me, I am like the energizer bunny and now someone has taken out my batteries????
Please help me figure this out,
