I'll start with a quick summary. In 99' my feet started to really ache. My MD didn't know what it was, actually said it was all in my head. I saw a podiatrist who treated me until my entire feel hurt so much that he decided he couldn't help anymore. Pulled my back a few months later and found out I had 4 degenerated and bulging back disks. A few months ago it was found that I have FM and CFS, now I'm being treated by a rhymotiligist. My back would get so bad that it effected so many different areas of my body. I even fractured a rib and figured the back was the cause of the pain, the fractured rib was found on an xray few months later. I started feeling sleepy most of the time, the areas of pain increased to the back of my knees all the way down to my toe joints, my elbows, knuckles and so on. I had difficulty trying to decide if it was my back acting up or the fibro. I can go out and run a few errands, however, I rarely complete them because I get too tired or to sore and need to get home. I've even noticed that I'm getting a lot of migranes, too. Are these any symtoms that any of you get? I even get the shakes in the mornings. I also have depression and anxiety. This really stinks!!!!!
