I should know better but I can't tell anymore. I ache all over, especially down the back of my legs, I've had a major trigger point episode on thursday night, fri, sat, and yesterday in my shoulder area and all I wanted to do was sleep. Today I've been in the bathroom all morning, I was spotting on Saturday (period was last week) and I feel like I'm in a fog, almost like I'm high....question: flare-up, perimenopause (I'm 47), stomach virus or am I just crazy? I have an appt w/my dr at 5:00 (I wanted to see him last week when everything started but he was too busy). The symptoms all at once are making me crazy. I'm going with a flare-up but the spotting confused me. The IBS episode is weird because all the pain meds I take should have the opposite effect. Anyway, I'm in work today (took Friday off) and I'm trying to act normal but I feel really weird. Thanks for any input. You have no idea how comforting it is knowing you're all out there. On the other hand I wish you weren't cause I wouldn't wise this crap on anyone but at least I someone who knows what I'm going thru. thanks again.
