Hi Everyone, I'm hoping maybe some of you could help me out... I have not as yet been diagnosed with anything other than spinal stenosis, long thoracic nerve palsy, and a frozen shoulder...and yet I seem to have many of the symptoms of Fibromyalgia: IBS sleep disturbance dry mouth and eyes pressure in my ear weakness in my upper extremeties chronic neck and shoulder pain sore wrists, upper arms and wrap-around rib pain blurring vision poor night vision extreme fatigue crawly feelings-especially on my face achy all over tender/sore places all over my body that wax and wane My doctor checked me out according to the standard 18 tender points of Fibro and said I don't have it (he sluffed me off when I asked if he wanted to know where I DO have tender points). I have read that Myofascial Pain has trigger points which when pressed cause referred pain to other parts of the body...I don't have that either. I seem to have the Fibro tender points...but in the wrong places! I sooooo need to know what's going on so I can get treatment. It's tough to get treatment when you don't know what your treating! In your experienced opinions, do FMS tender points HAVE to be only in the charted 18 locations? I get them in weird places...my feet...my butt...it's making me crazy being constantly told "it's not this" and "it's not that". Then what is it??? Any thoughts? Nan Luv you guys!!
