    The past two weeks I have been getting rapidly worst. None of my meds are working. I suspect it isn't related to my fibro but I am terrified. I have lost 25 lbs. in the last month due to the pain. I have no appetite at all. My heart pounds like crazy. Any nurses out there that might know what these symptoms mean or any others with these symptoms? P

    Hi . I am sorry you are having a hard time with this . I pray it gets better for you.

    not sure if I can be of much help.... just wanted to let you know though . I do get hot flashes and sweats.. I can even be dripping sweat from my forhead and my legs will be cold. so I cover up my legs and have the fan on my upper body .. Crazy ..
    can't say I have lost any weaight though I wish... but he amount you have lost so fast in not good I would think...

    and if your meds are not helping ... might be something going on.. I know when I get something added to this Darn Fibro and CF .. my Meds seem to not work ether .. gets to be to much .

    check in with your Doc I would think.. let us know what they say ok..

    Take care . Huggles.

    It's time to call your doctor. Anytime you lose that much weight (without trying) you need to be checked out. Because you've been sick longer than a month it may be an infection. Or a really bad flu bug but most flu bugs don't usually linger longer than a week or two.It may also be anxiety but to be safe get this checked out.
    I hope you feel better soon. ((((HUGS))))

    Thanks for the replys. I am going to go to the E.R. if I need to. I am calling my Dr. tomorrow to see if I can get in. Since I have had fibro, I have never even caught a cold and I think that is weird because I used to get everything that went around. I have recently had alot of blood tests per Dr. Dantini's protocol but haven't gotten them back yet. Thanks for the support because I really need it right now. P
