    Devin's diagnostics lists about 100 possible symptoms. You can do a search on the web. I have about 60 of them so shouldn't try to list them here. I only was diagnosed after many different tests over many years failed to find anything specific. I don't have diabetes though so nothing I can compare to.

    Too many to list! But I'll give it a go...Muscle pain and rigidity, pain upon repetitive motion, fatigue, insomnia....and the brain fog I am apparrently suffering today, because I am at loss to name anymore symptoms...and there are hundreds! I feel the same way you do with pain all the time, tired all the time, and forget housework because I do good just to do the basic neccesities! My fibromyalgia came first 11 yrs ago, then diabetes 4 yrs ago. Found out I had diabetes one morning when I got out of bed and fell because my left foot was paralyzed. The diabetic meds make me drowsy, so it's like we've got a double whammy. Oh, the docs say I got the diabetes as an offshoot from the Graves disease (thyroid) that started the whole thing 11 yrs ago.

    Nice to meet you suemaxwell, Brenda :eek:)
