    My brother sent me an email on fibro, because of my symptoms, it sounds like I may have it, because of the cause can be from bacterim/viral infections. I had atleast 10 sinus infections last year, been in severe depression, woke up last week feeling tight, like a pulled muscle, went to chiropractor and he said I had muscle spasms and was too tense and this was not normal however he knew of all the trajedies in our family and understood. Now I think it could be fibro but have not been diagnosed, I feel the flu like symptoms and full head, like bad sinus, very dizzy, feels like someone is screwing a clamp on my head, pain is moving all around my neck, head and back, I do feel like I have a ton a of weights on my arms, legs as I walk, I just turned 40. Can you guys that know, let me know if it sounds like I have this? I took herbal muscle relaxers and tylenol and it doesn't touch the pain, I feel like I'm dying. Haven't worked in months. Please help.
    Thanks, Tess
