I have not been diagnosed with FM, however, all symptoms fit. I have had ulcerative colitis for 5 years and have had 3 flare-ups, the last one not as bad as the other 2. Hospitalized for a week on those. The last flare just ended. I'm 45 years old and weigh 175. Lost 40 pounds last year on a low carb diet. About a year ago, I started having headaches, dull eye pain and extreme fatigue several times a day that required a nap. After awakening, I would feel worse with muscle pain, a stronger headache and a feeling of internal shakiness. This occurs almost daily, regardless of when I eat. The internal shakiness now exists all the time. I cannot sleep at night without Ambien. Most mornings when I wake up, I feel like I have not slept and I ache all over, in the points indicating FM with some worse than others. I have arthritis in my hips. My neck and shoulders ache continuously. After a day of working in the yard, I ache for the entire next day. I've been tested recently for Celiac Disease and the results were negative. More recently, I have numbness in three fingers of both hands, the middle, ring and little, with shooting numbness from my arms to them. This is most all the time but worse when laying down. Additionally, when I stand up from bending or laying down, I usually will have a fallout, like low blood pressure. I've been to a rheumatoligist and she has now referred me to a neurologist. Appointment on the 26th. Can anyone tell me if these symptoms sound like FM? It's sometimes hard to be objective when looking for an answer. Any answers would be greatly appreciated.
