Hi all, I'm new here and have spent the last two days reading all your stories, and they break my heart. I haven't been diagnosed but have had two different Dr.s bring up Fibromyalgia or Rheumatic disorders. I've been doing the going from Dr. to Dr. for almost three years now. Lately I've been feeling worse with each day. I wake up in the morning feeling like I've been run over by a truck. Every part of my body hurts but it does get a little better after I've been up and moving for awhile. I'm so tired and I run fevers every afternoon where I feel like I've just come down with the flu and it makes the aches and pains worse. I'm lucky in that I'm a stay at home mom and don't have to sit through work each day, I don't know how some of you are able to do it, very strong people on this board. I do have three young sons and a ton of housework and general things that need to get done each day and it seems each day I fall a little farther behind, and the guilt is starting to eat away at me. This all started three years ago after the birth of my son. It started with daily headaches and neck stiffness that progressed to my shoulders, wrists, knees, ankles and what feels like almost every muscle in my body. No matter how much sleep I get, I'm always tired. I want to wake up one day and feel refreshed. It's a feeling I haven't felt in years. My husband is great and on the weekends he lets me sleep in and sleep as much as I need to during the day but it doesn't help and the tiredness never leaves. I have the daily fevers, aches and pain all over my body, daily headaches and trouble sleeping. I've been on many different sleep aids. My PCP figured that my insomnia was playing a role in all of this and if I would sleep better it would help but so far it hasn't and it's been over two years. I've been to the neuro, liver specialist/gastro for a separate problem and a pulmonologist/sleep specialist recently who suggested fibromyalgia/rheumatic diseases. I have a family history of rheumatic disorders on both sides of my family so I'm not sure if that's why he suggested it or if he really believes it could be. There's rheumatoid arthritis on my mom's side and my dad has polymyalgia rheumatica/fibromyalgia and so do his cousins and some of their children. I have had blood tests in the past that showed a high sed rate, positive ana test, I also had a positive RF test but X-rays showed nothing. The pulmonologist seemed shocked I had yet to have a diagnosis. Am I doing something wrong, not being aggressive enough? Or by my symptoms do I not really seem to fall into any of the auto-immune disorder categories and my Dr.s so far are right on, in the no diagnosis? Any help would be appreciated, and good luck to everyone.
