    Hi guys. I'm new here. I went to the doctor today for a follow up for fatigue. I have fatigue, fog, seeing blurry, pain in my hips, getting forgetful, my hip pain gets worse when i walk or exercise. I've been so tired and i can't concentrate, no fever, no rash, i've had a sore throat for 4 months. I'm 32.

    He ordered a bunch of blood work, checking my thryroid and inflamation test (i've never heard of this one) and he said depending on how they come back, it might be fibro.

    I have a question, what would make him think that instead of cfs? I'm still reading and I know you probably get this question all the time :/

    edit: oh i forgot to mention that last year some time, my entire rib cage was inflammed, the WHOLE thing. We have no idea why, he gave me meds and it went away.

    Yeah. I was reading that there are some things they can see on the blood tests to point to either one if everything else is normal. Is that true?

    I'm so confused and feel so overwhelmed. I thought it was all in my head :/
