    And yes, it is absolutely a common problem with Fibromyalgia. Stress is a huge factor in all fibro symptoms, as a change in temperature or humidity. So yes, it could be from the fibro. I used to get really scared when I had the neuropathic symptoms because they can be the sign of a herniated disc, or other serious problem. It took a couple of MRI's and specialists to convince me that there was "nothing wrong" Well, until I was diagnosed with fibro - now I know what's wrong, just not how to fix it!

    I understand your second guessing the diagnosis. Obviously they should have tested you for anything else that may be causing your symptoms, to put everyone's mind at ease.

    It took me a few months after diagnosis, doing tons of research of my own, before I accepted my diagnosis. Do some more research on your symptoms, and fibro symptoms & see if you think they match up. Can't hurt to do your own research!

    Good luck!

    Did the doc verify if you were deficient in any vitamins? My doc checked them all and I have pernicious anemia. So I take B12 sublingual drops under the tongue. When I got out of the hospital last Oct. after suffering seizures due to an infection I had tingling in my feet for a few weeks. Its gone now so Im assuming it was due to my immune system having been dragged down so long and the antibiotics probably zapped all my vitamins and minerals.
