I'm thrilled to have found this community for both the information AND allowing me to feel as if this difficult journey I am on is one that I am not traveling alone - and that's huge.
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 7 yeras ago and then with pretty severe panic/anxiety just four years ago. I am still struggling to keep both in check.
The past two years I have been battling a sense of being "unwell," very tight upper chest and severe fatigue. I have had so many blood tests, scopes, scans an "medical solutions" that I can hardly keep them all straight. I am currently (as of a week ago) taking 40mg of Nexium after both Prolosec and Prevacid offered no help.
My main symptoms: very tight muscles in upper chest, cough, headaches, fatigue and general reflux.
I will continue to read the forums and learn from others. All the best for a wonderful 2008.
