I am a 44 year old woman, I have all the typical annoying symptoms every fibromyalgic person has. Fatigue, brain fog, pain in neck, shoulders, elbows, arms, wrists, fingers, etc. I was diagnosed in 1995. First symptom came a month after I had contacted a roto virus. Severe burning pain in my thigh muscles. But the worst problem is I will frequently be hit with a huge wave of exhaustion, and have this crying spell that is hard to control. And my upper stomach starts cramping up really bad, and I start hyperventilating. It's not that I'm upset or sad, not at all, it just happens out of the blue. Then, my body just curls up into a ball and I can't straighten out without being in horrible pain. And I zone out totally, but I'm not sleeping, I'm just paralyzed. I call it my Fibro coma. It takes about three hours to get out of this position. I do not have any other disesaes like Arthritis or Lupus, or anything so I am relating it to Fibromyalgia right now, but if nobody has this symptom, maybe I'm wrong. Please let me know if you have this too? I discussed this at a Fibromyalgia meeting and nobody had it.
