I don't have a diagnosis of FMS. It was recently mentioned to me as a potential cause and I am seeking medical advice soon. Over the last 4-5 years the pain that I experience has become far too frequent and far too painful to ignore. I used to go a month without most of my issues. My symptoms used to flare around my period, and vanish with it. I figured it was normal. Now it seems like I face symptoms daily. If it isn't one thing, it's another... but it's usually everything at the same time. I get cluster headaches and migraines that will last for up to over a month at a time. I have IBS-C. TMJ. Severe and seemingly impossible to cure Acid Reflux. Restless legs. Extreme neck and back pain (I have S shaped scoliosis) but it isn't severe, my muscles (particularly my back, neck and shoulders) feel like they have hot water running down them constantly. My feet go numb if elevated more than a few minutes, so do my arms if I fold them over my chest while laying down. My eyes hurt 75% of the time... I know that sounds weird but they do. The muscles hurt when I try to look around. I have the most bizarre pressure in my ears, but trying to "pop" them only makes it worse. The feeling of my skin being pushed or pulled hurts and then itches (I immediately try to rub the feeling away). Everything is amplified when I'm on my period, which is extremely painful on it's own but only lasts 2-4 days - nothing about it is "regular" either. You'll know just as well as I do when it's going to come. And, YET, the thing that scares me the most is that I don't remember things. I can't tell you much of anything about my high school or college career if it didn't happen more than a few times. Some of my teachers names and/or faces are big blanks - I mean... come one... I'm 25 and it's been this way for years. Important events are slightly easier to remember, but my family or friends will talk about a story and all I can think is "that never happened.... did it?" I don't even slightly remember these things to the point that I will cross check what they said w/ someone else who was there. I bruise like a peach. And I'm always so friggin' tired. I want to sleep forever... but can't. When I lay in bed too long I get a migraine. ha! I have severe night sweats, and wake up feeling shaky, like I have the flu (particularly after naps). No matter what I do I'm uncomfortable. I have to bail on plans all the time bc I just don't have the energy. I can't make it to work because I don't have the energy to get ready. At least not in the morning. I get a mild burst of energy around lunch, it slumps down again a few hours after, and picks back up again for a little while. Bedtime rolls around and I toss and turn, can't get comfortable, can't fall asleep, and wake up at everything. I have no friends anymore. I feel like I'm falling into a ditch that just keeps getting bigger w/ no way to get back out. I feel like I could list a million more things, but I'm sure this post is boring enough as it it. I just want to know if this sounds like the experiences that any of you face as well... thank you for your time.
