It's a few months since I visited this board and I have a question! Since August 3rd 2007 I have been unwell with a lot of symptoms. Initially my symptoms were burning/buzzing/icy sensations (paraesthesias) in lower legs which have progressed to upper legs, buttocks, thighs, face, eyebrows, arms etc and this was initially diagnosed as Peripheral Neuropathy - possibly a SFN (small fibre neuropathy). Also stocking-glove sensations. Extreme general fatigue quickly followed the onset of paraesthesias, then muscle fatigue, weakness and stiffness. Heavy eyelids and a weak voice also. Then flitting pains in joints which could be extremely painful and could prevent me from walking on a limb for a couple of days. When these pains disappeared there was no sign that they had ever been. Also I have had quite a bit of nausea and stomach discomfort. Over the past six months joint pain and stiffness, have sometimes made it hard to get out of the car, get up from a chair and sometimes very slow walking. Fingers and hands started to get stiff in the mornings about July 2008. Some finger joints have started to change shape. I got a terrible cough in April 2008 which lasted until November. While in hospital in September I was diagnosed with Bronchiectasis of both lungs. Later in September I started to get worsening stomach issues like early satiety, fullness, nausea and some vomiting. Last week I was diagnosed with Gastroparesis (paralyzed stomach due to a damaged Vagus nerve) and am now on an all liquid/pureed diet. Gastroparesis is an autonomic form of Peripheral Neuropathy, so it is a compatible kind of diagnosis with PN! Also in 2008 I had raised Mycoplasma Pn. titres. Yesterday I went to see a Rheumatologist and tried to communicate all the symptoms I have had to give her as much information as possible on which to base an opinion. I was a bit hesitant about going to her as I have found that it is not until I get doctors at the Associate Professor or Professor level that I get any real satisfaction. Although she explained things quite well I don't know if she really got the complexity of it all. In the end as she tried to hurry me out the door she grabbed a Fibromyalgia sheet from her drawer and said "I didn't really want to raise this" and said FMS is a neurological condition. She said there is no need to reschedule another appointment and she charged me for an extended visit! I'm not totally convinced about her Fibromyalgia conclusions! I know there was a time last year in desperation before I started to get any answers to the cough and the stomach problems when I thought that ME/Fibromyalgia was a possible answer, but now I am not so sure!!! So one question I have is: is there a greater proportion of people with Fibromyalgia, who along with limb tingling/burning as a symptom ... end up getting Gastroparesis or extreme muscle twitching (Fasciculations) like 30,000 per day or any of the other autonomic or motor associated symptoms of neuropathy? These are definitely Neurological problems and if Fibromyalgia is increasingly being considered a neurological condition then are these aspects also widely prevalent among Fibromyalgia people? Any feedback, opinions or input would be most appreciated!
