Hi, New to this board. Just wanted to run this by everyone & hopefully get some opinions. In August I was hospitalized with a severe stomach virus and have been under a tremendous amount of stress. My husband had life threatening surgery in September & is having chemo now. Seems like everything has exploded all at once. Within a few weeks after my hospitalization I started out having pain in shoulders, neck, chest, thighs, etc. That has died down, now I have pain in my feet, toes, hands and fingers, sort of a cramping feeling, also front of lower legs & arms. I also get pains in my head. All these "pains" last a few seconds but are normally occur all day long. Do you think the virus & stress and all this fibro pain are related? Have seen a rheum. twice with lots of lab work. He stated yesterday that I have a positive ANA for Lupus, but said there are a lot of "false positives" and did more labs & I return in December for results. He did not rule out fibro. I do not have the symptoms of Lupus (rash, sores, etc.) I do have fibro symptoms. Does anyone have any insight to this - my mind & body are overwhelmed. Please help!
