Since Misfit had such good luck getting a diagnosis from her doc after receiving help from so many posters here, I thought I might mention some of my symptoms and see if anyone has any ideas. Maybe “all” I have is FM. If that’s the case, I guess I should be thankful, based on what some others are dealing with. And no, I’m not asking for a diagnosis, just some ideas. I was diagnosed with FM in 2000, 8 months after surgery to remove my gallbladder. It seems like I just never recovered from that. Sure, I have my good days and my bad days, but mostly I have felt yucky! Anyway, here are my “issues.” - generalized pain - severe pain in lower back, hips and both feet - exhaustion, exhaustion, exhaustion - heart palpitations (I have premature ventricular contractions but this is different. When I’m laying in bed on my side, I can feel my heart pounding on the mattress) - constantly thirsty (no, I don’t have diabetes) - restless leg syndrome - IBS - Kidney stones, as well as a cyst on my kidney that I just had removed – labs have been within normal limits, for the most part) - New pain (3-4 weeks) on the left side of my neck - Some edema in both feet which does not seem much better after a full night’s sleep - Brain fog - trouble word-finding, difficulty learning new things - Degenerative arthritis in neck, spine, hips and hands - Recent abnormal liver function tests (I’m embarrassed to say that I don’t remember the results but will be seeing my rheumy again on 2 weeks and will be asking for copies of my bloodwork and more of an explanation) - Xrays from 4 years ago supposedly showed Ankylosing Spondylitis - Light sensitivity - Depression - Occasional dizziness, lightheadedness OK, I’m sure I’ve missed something but I don’t want to bore anyone. Thanks in advance.
