I have been reading alot of your posts. I believe that I may have fm. I will try to tell you my history as briefly as possible. 1987 - endometriosis 1988 - baby 88 - 91 2 endometriosis surgeries 91 - baby 99 - terrible shin pain - diagnosed with ganglion cyst - I got a cortisone shot 2002 - endometriosis surgery and I had a tubal ligation 2003 - terrible abdominal pain - went to ER - had a tubal pregnancy that had ruptured. Bleeding internally - emergency surgery. 2003 - 1 month after tubal pregnancy - had a hysterectomy - they left one ovary. March - May 2006 - moderate calf pain in right leg and feet hurting alot and fatigued May 2006 - Stabbing pain in right leg - I couldn't walk for several days. I finally got into an orthapedic surgeon 2 weeks later. MRI - they thought that I had cancer and sent me to an oncologist. Biopsy - not cancer but he said that the cyst would have to come out because it had branches that had my nerve smashed flat - if it was not removed - I would have drop foot. August 1, 2006 - Cyst removed right under the front of my knee. After surgery - I could not stand anything touching my right calf for quite some time. Then the bottom of my right foot starting hurting so bad that I couldn't stand it. Then the left foot. At this point - every joint in my body hurts. I also have had for at least a year my toes twitch on my right foot at night and it drives me crazy and I don't sleep well. I am very tired all the time. They did a blood test for RA and said it was negative. I now have an appointment with a foot dr - Jan. 24th and a rheumy Feb. 21st. I don't know if I can wait that long. I thought maybe you all could give me some advice. I am very sad. I also have pain in the back of my thigh when sitting in a chair very long. Thank god my husband got me a laptop for Christmas!! I will be very glad to hear any of your comments. Sorry this is so long. Thanks!!!
