I would be so grateful if anyone could help? My Mum is 73 and last year had problems with the ligaments in her knees. In October she caught a cough and flu virus. She hhad stiffness in her neck which then travelled around her body where she could not even walk or move. She now has tender points in her arms and says that she cannot even lift a plate and also pain and stiffness in her legs which make it difficult for her to walk. It is worse when she gets up in the morning. She has lost weight and is very tired all the time. She has been to her GP who says it is porbably a virus and has sent her for a blood test and given her 400 mg ibroprofen. Does this sound like she has Fibromyalgia?
