    DO YOU HAVE FIBRO???? THE SYMPTOMS YOU DESCRIBE ARE OFTEN TYPICAL. DO NOT BE ALARMED AT THE FEAR IT IS OFTEN CAUSED BY HYPOGLYCEMIA. THEY CAN NOT TEST YOU FOR THIS AT THE HOSPITAL. BUT YOU CAN TEST YOUR SELF.
    PLEASE GET THE BOOK What your Doctor May Not tell you about Fibromyalgia. Or check Guaidoc on the web. I can not give you the full address but you will find it.
    Stay with this site for many tips & bits of advise. But remember to take all complaints with a (pinch of salt) in other words Dear don't believe every thing you read. Remember, we are ill & we are not Doctors. But you will find many here who have been helped & want to help others.
    I have found GUAIFENESIN to be a life line. You can buy it here at the store, but you need to follow a certain protocol. So, please educate your self. You are young & are so fortunate to have all this info so you can help your self because most Docs just don't know what to do for FIBRO.
    Blessings ,,,Day

    That you have a chronic productive cough bringing up dark phlegm. This is not normal. The fact that a spot showed up on your chest x-ray is not normal either. Get another opinion. If it's any comfort, this does not sound like a blood clot, although I'm not a doc. Pain in the leg could be a blood clot and should be checked out and not assumed to be FMS. Do not rub this sore spot. Inactivity, which is a hallmark of our illnesses, can be a factor in developing blood clots.

    Sweetie, do not dwell on the loss of one of our members, as sad and horrible as it was. Use your anxiety and grief to motivate you to get to the bottom of your problems. Never, ever let docs brush your concerns aside. Find a new doc and get your concerns addressed.

    Love, Mikie
