i thought i was loosing my mind but a friend suggested i be tested for fms. i guess i want answers sooner than my appointment with the fms dr's. i have had nothing but "its all in your head for years" and now that there may be a light at the end of the tunnel i guess i'm looking for answers. my symptoms are insomnia, as i call it prickly face(cheeks), soreness on lower back, base of neck, both forearms, tingly feet and finger(sometimes hands)memory and concentration difficulties, zero tolerance to flourescent lights, sensitive to certain smells, sounds, ringing in my ears(at times-it lasted one time for nine months) etc. well i unfortuantely could go on but is this fms?
