Hello, I am new here. I have been told by several people that I should have myself checked for FMS. I have been diagnosed as having Torticollis along with other severe muscle spasms. Over the past 4 or 5 years my condition has worsened drastically. I have days and weeks of severe pain in my joints and muscles - especially in my back and neck muscles and in all the joints in my arms and hands. Some of the pain never goes away and in fact gets worse every day. I also have numbness in my hands, arms, and fingers, sometimes even in my feet and lower legs. I have episodes of unexplainable dizziness. I can never get a good nights rest because my legs twitch, spasm and never feel comfortable. One of the worst things though is the chronic fatigue. I may feel rested one minute then all of a sudden its as though something sucked every ounce of energy out of my body. I go through weeks at a time at work where I feel as though I may fall over asleep from a total lack of energy. Today I sit here scared, asking myself why. I was not able to go to work today, I wanted to but I just physically could not do it. I have muscle spasms today in my neck, back and chest (it hurts to take a deep breath). I could not even pick up my 1 1/2 year old son this morning. I don't really have anyone to talk to about this, my wife loves me, but I know she doesn't understand and I feel constantly like I'm letting her down. Where do I go, I know something is wrong? I've been to my doctor for some of these symptoms and he has never suggested that I may have FM. I'm a 34 year old man with a family to support. I'm a chef at a restaurant that offers no insurance... where do I turn to first?
