Was diagnosed with FM about 2 years ago. Symptoms getting much worse: increased pain/stiffness (even my hair hurts some days -- people think I'm nuts for saying this); can't seem to stand for longer than half an hour, can't sleep with Ambien 10 mg. (dr. said try adding diphenhydramine 25 mg. -- didn't help at all), had been on Elavil but had horrible, vivid nightmares. Was rear-ended in a very low velocity impact (maybe 5 mph?) and symptoms seems worse after that. Had x-rays and MRI -- no fractures, no herniated discs. Horrible concentration -- I lost a very good job due to this. Have also noticed decrease in visual acuity, although I've gone to the opthalmologist twice now and the last time they put in punctal plugs (said I had no tear film on my eyes) -- this is not helping. God, I feel awful. I used to be a smart, mentally sharp, fun-loving person with a great memory, and the ability to appreciate even the smallest pleasures -- now I feel like an empty, broken shell with no energy, in constant pain. My husband says I am lazy, and if we were both in a foxhole he'd take my gun and shoot me so he'd have a chance to survive. I am so demoralized and feel so worthless. Are these additional symptoms, i.e., dry eyes, decreased visual acuity, mental cloudiness, ?rosacea (although this seems to have decreased) related to FM? Is anyone taking glucosamine/chondroitin? Who is the most appropriate doctor? Rheumatologist? Neurologist? Pain Management (if there is such a thing)? Thanks for any advice; this is really hard for me to even voice these statements. I'm a pretty private person, and I feel like a prisoner hiding a big secret.
