Hello Everybody. To all of you that have experienced a "Relapse" would you mind sharing with me what you go through? I just would like to sort out for myself, from your experiences, if I really belong and experience what other Fibro sufferers do (cause I have my doubts I fit in here) Many of my symptoms indicate MS (is this my destiny) Your experience, I am hoping, will clarify if what is going on with me fits here or there. If you want to read on, this is how a Relapse is for me there is sudden loss of ability to move or use arms, legs? Are Fibro relapses a gradual process of the muscles spasm. How does a relapse come on for you? Does your body give out warning signals? When I relapse I lose the ability to see clearly, think or remember where I am, first my arms lose strength, over the next hour the entire body goes into spasm until I'm freezing cold, unable to talk, pins and needles quickly progress from head to toe, no one is able to touch any part of my skin as the pain increases tenfold and I have recently urinated myself without knowing Id done so, my hands and feet turn purple,and I keep being told how drunk I appeared. I lie whereever I am, concrete floor, where ever until my muscles have no reason to keep tightening (I do remember the urgency to urinate every few minutes)it takes an hr or more to finally subside, however, my muscles immediately feel bruised and pulled all over which takes about a week to overcome. Slurring speach, is another part of it. Now, this will for me come and go then stop as suddenly as it started and have no pain, sometime for months then I get about two weeks of things I now notice as a potential relapse. The reason I ask is that my GP has suggested that may be I have been getting treated for the wrong condition and may be I have Fibro and maybe I have MS or another neurological condition. doesn't believe I do have FIBRO due to the nature of my "what I call relapses" and I havn't been able to understand exactly why I feel like the only person to have relapses which are more indicitive of an MS Relapse than a Fibro Relapse.
