    okay my lights on but nobodys home, i think. i sat there and realized, duh, that the doc put down the mps as a seperate diagnosis from fm why? it is a symptom right? it was like dianosis deppression myofasidal paindisorder and fibromyalgia. and then put down the skin irritation thing i started with eczemaa with this also not to be too personal but yeast infections on my body so she put that down as a diagnosis too,i forgot the words used but isnt that crazy? or am i just not thinking straight? theses are all symptons oh and also i forgot the restless leg syndrom and tremors i forgot how to spell it kin...thingy was down seperate, if tats the case put a big word for each symptom, i dunno. i guess im in the fog right now lol

    Fibromyalgia Syndrome(FMS) and Myofascial Pain Syndrome MPS are two different syndromes/diagnoses.

    I don't know if that helps any or not,

    THEY ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE ALIKE IN MANY WAYS I ALSO HAVE BOTH AND IT MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE TO EXERCISE.CMP USUALLY STARTS OUT WITH AN INJURY AND REPETITIVE MOTION IVE HAD CMP FOR A VERY LONG TIME THEN ABOUT 3 YRS AGO FIBRO KICKED IN. MPS IS NOW CALLED CMP IT IS NO LONGER A SYNDROME LIKE FIBRO IT IS CONCIDERED A DISEASE I HOPE THIS HELPS CLEAR A FEW THINGS UP. THERE ARE BOOKS ON HAVING BOTH OR YOU CAN SEARCH THE WEB. GOOD LUCK CHARLENE

    The important thing is that the different conditions have different causes and different treatment plans must be created.

    I really appreciate everyone for all the input I get better educated up here than from the docs she acted like it was no big deal just a bigt word for some muscle aches her words i will go look for it sepereate rather than looking at it under the fm info i had file for social security not to be lame but right now i cant wash up without having making changes and getting out of a chair is so hard now i still cant get over that i actually wont sit on my couch it hurts because of the material but also usually the middle is the only availabel ara open lol wrap around style so i cant get up the chairs at the doc offices i will pick the ones with the arms so i can push up and my arms will give out so i plop too lol but i was usually in physical work and i cant do that but right now i have to figure out how to get a handle on this ive been dealing for a short time with real bad symptoms for a year ive had crazy symptoms for years but one day it struck me like lightening and took me out bedridden for two months really one month i had to be helped the whole time to get to the bathroom carried wise and the second i could sit up slowly through the pain sit on the edge and someone would lift me and i used the walls and they held my arm after that i couldtn stand on my own without support for a month i think since then i just make myself go so now i am mobile with a cane if it comes down to it and i have to drive,i shouldnt drive i stopped but sometimes i have to, i cant turn my head so i pray real hard and go my brother in law a sherrif said he would pull me over to do a test on the road good thing where i drive at the path not alot of homes kinda in the country area. he did do a dui on me in the house on my medication this is when i was on gabapentin and i failed bad. real bad.well i am rambling i just meant to say thanx you guys much love bkay dont worry i am not on the road in your area really small area where i am lol the worst id do is put myself in aa ditch
