Hello everyone, I've never been here before, but I need help from somewhere and am hoping to get any more information about fibromyalgia. This may be a long post... My legs have been hurting and just not working properly for about a year now, and my doctor has been alternately unconcerned and stumped as to the reason. I was sent to a neurologist who charged me over $800 for some nerve tests which came back fine. She said I should get an MRI of my brain, but frankly, it is over $1000, which I do not have at present. Meanwhile, I have been tired and sore all over and now my arms have been effected as well. I wake up each morning with my hands asleep and so weak that I can not make a fist. They are swollen much of the time, especially in the morning. My legs burn and hurt all day and all night, and I can not stand people touching me at all. I have had to turn to the internet to try to find out what in the heck is wrong with me, since I don't have very good insurance anymore, and just about every symptom I have looks like fibromyalgia. But I have also been reading that there is not much that can be done about it. I don't know for sure that I even have it, and basically, I need to get rid of it. Is there any real treatment? Has anyone ever tried the Guaifenesin route? Does this even sound like fibromyalgia? Should I even go to my doctor and see if this is what it is, since nothing can be done about it? No flames please, I really need the info!
