Welcome to the community karebare. I'm sorry you have fibro. I do too and OA among other things. Try to get a referral to a rheumatologist. Some of them treat fibro. Not all do. They might test you for MS.
Welcome Karebare! When I was first diagnosed with fibromyalgia I also thought it was MS, but after a LOT of research and seeing specialists I realised the symptoms are quite different. You probably have brain fog, bad concentration, forgetfulness, inability to concentrate which could lead you to thinking you have MS, but MS is totally different and presents itself in a totally different way, shakes, lack of coordination, falling, failure to complete small tasks like peeling potatoes or stirring a sauce. Have you had a fit? Please try not to worry, as frustrating as it is, your Dr knows what he/she is doing. Have faith. Have faith in your Dr, in yourself and in the Lord ✝️
Welcome karebear! I was diagnosed (dx) with fibro in 2009, and I have a long list of other chronic pain issues. I have multiple dx that cause imbalance, dizziness, and stumbling or falling; vertigo, vestibular neuronitis of the 8th cranial nerve, POTS, and my migraines and cervicogenic headaches & seasonal allergies can all set off inner ear issues that lead to imbalance. I was sent all the way to Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville FL to test me for suspected MS, and they found the VM 8th cranial nerve. I did not have MS but was also dx with memory loss. The doc who referred me to Mayo was a neurologist. I've been using a cane and rollator for nearly 8 years to help me with the imbalances while walking. I can walk around a corner and the simple turning motion can set it off! Keep a journal of all your symptoms and take them to show your doctor. Ask if he/she will refer you to a rheumatologist or neurologist or for further studies. You can sometimes see a doc without referrals, and could ask for a second opinion. Many dx share so many common symptoms, which is why charting your symptoms on a daily basis is good. Also note what you were doing when it started and how long it lasted. Take it one day at a time, one step at a time. Pace your activity and rest periods, and listen to your body signals to learn what you need when. Be willing to check out and try different suggestions to help you. Hugs love & prayers you will find ways that help you cope best, as we are all different and no one thing works for everyone! 🙂❤🙏🌼
