Hi, I'm new here. I was dianosed with Lupus this past October, but I am wondering if I also have Fibro or CF. My pain comes and goes, but can be debilitating. With Lupus my joints stay inflamed and hurt. But when I am having a really bad day, every fiber of my being hurts. I have had lots of pain for the past couple of years in my neck, upper back, and shoulders. I feel like one big spasm sometimes.....even turning over in the bed hurts. I also have the dry eyes, brain fog, horrible fatigue, feel like I have the flu at times, and my feet hurt terribly. I also get irritable bowel, walk like I'm 90 in the mornings (I'm 46), have had panic attacks and depression for years (taking Paxil). The sun kills my eyes and I can't hear squat! I've also gained 25 pounds and cant' get a single pound off, and I have night sweats. (sounds attractive, huh?) My doc did a series of x-rays to see if there was a problem with my spine....nope. Looks fine, except that it hurts so bad that I would take street drugs if I could get them. I have been feeling like a truck ran over me and my body just hurts all over. I've never been diagnosed with FM. One doctor said that the upper body pain is myofascial pain...what is that? Anyway, if anyone can shed any light on this, I would really appreciate it.
