Ok, what about the rest. I really am trying to help but without more information it's almost impossible. I will try to help you but you need to tell me why you think you have fibro. Think about it a while and let me know. 🌻🙏🏻

Jan 31, 2016 6:48 AM

Some days I'm free without pain ......some days severe pain I'm totally confused I donno Wat to type also

Jan 31, 2016 6:51 AM

Ok Suji, What you need to do is contact your doctor. Let him know that your pain is becoming more widespread. Ask for the name of a neurologist and have them draw blood to check for inflammation and other issues that can cause pain. You'll probably have to go through many tests and perhaps many doctors. Make sure to write down all of your symptoms and also any questions you think of that you would want to ask the doctor. Sometimes it takes many years to diagnose fibromyalgia but it could be that your experiencing issues from your situation with gout but I'm not a doctor so I couldn't tell you if that's the case. You definitely need to seek medical attention. Let us know how things go and keep us posted and let us know how you're doing. Saying a prayer for you that you will get the answers that you need. 🌻🙏🏻

I'm sorry. So young to be in pain. Also to have a new wife and worry about being in pain. I would definitely go to your doctor

Jan 31, 2016 6:55 AM

Morning ill have pain in legs n forearm from 20 days ......jus mild pain after few hours pain reduces completely

Jan 31, 2016 6:56 AM

Maybe I'm thinking to much ?

Jan 31, 2016 6:56 AM

If it gets better as the day goes on, it doesn't sound like fibromyalgia. It may be something else causing your pain. I pray your doctor is able to help you find the answers you need. Best of luck to you. {{{Hugs}}} 🌻🙏🏻

Jan 31, 2016 6:58 AM

And in 18 tender points I made my wife to press .....I dint feel pain at all

Jan 31, 2016 7:01 AM

Wat are tests done to find fibromyalgia symptoms ?

Jan 31, 2016 7:03 AM

There are so many.. You really need to call your doctor and discuss it at length. Since you have no pain on pressure areas and your pain gets better with the day going by, it doesn't sound like you have fibro.

Jan 31, 2016 7:06 AM

Why can't u try indian medicine for fibromyalgia ?

Jan 31, 2016 7:07 AM

Umm, well you can try..but I suggest you try to relax, worrying increases anxiety which increases your pain perception.. Love and blessings, Terri

Jan 31, 2016 7:12 AM

Thanks for helping Terri!! 💕

Jan 31, 2016 7:13 AM

Hi there. It's best to get your doctor to investigate. Don't try and second guess. Fibro has over 200 symptoms, most are like other illnesses. I wouldn't wish fibro on anyone but atleast it's not life threatening, where as other illnesses can be. Certainly get your depression medicated tho. If you can focus or think straight, you cant/won't be able to cope with anything else. Sending healing hugs to you. 🐻

Jan 31, 2016 7:13 AM

Yeah its 100% true worrying increase pain

Jan 31, 2016 7:16 AM

Yes, Suji, it does. It also raises your blood pressure and will make your heart beat faster. Try to take deep breaths, listen to some music that makes you calm and try to do some meditation. It really helps. 🌻🙏🏻

Jan 31, 2016 7:19 AM

I donno I'm suffering from uric acid crystals or something . .......plzz wch doctor shld I meet ? Orthopaedic or rheumatologist doctor?

Jan 31, 2016 7:29 AM

I would go to your family doctor and have him recommend a rheumatologist and neurologist for you. I would also address your depression and anxiety with him. That needs to settle first and then you may not experience as much pain. 🌻🙏🏻

Jan 31, 2016 7:35 AM

I'm in lot of depression ..........and one more thing whn I have mild to severe pain I'm depressed n dull .......as soon my pain vanish I'm vry active n energetic. ...mind changes according to pain

Jan 31, 2016 7:37 AM

😀 yep that's where you start..and don't worry until you are told to worry. Enjoy the part of the day that you are pain free! Lots of Blessings, Terri

Jan 31, 2016 7:40 AM

Thanku Terri........feeling sad for everyone and one last doubt medication won't help to reduce fibromyalgia patients ?

Jan 31, 2016 7:42 AM

They do sometimes, suji, but others not so much. It's really a trial and error thing like most medications. You'll need adjustment or changes

Jan 31, 2016 8:03 AM

How can u ppl bear soo much pain .....god plzz do help .

Jan 31, 2016 7:49 PM

Suji, are you aware that gout, caused by high levels of iris acid can affect multiple joints, that it can spread? I posted a link above to WebMD info on gout. My mother had gout, and they controlled her attacks through removing foods in her diet that triggered episodes. She was not able to eat any type of seafood, canned, fresh, or frozen. And I believe she had to cut other foods room her diet but it's been so long ago I can't remember. That's something you'd doctor can help you with.

I can't say whether or not you have fibromyalgia. Like AlwayZ suggested, I think you need to return to your doctor for further testing. Maybe you should go to a rheumatologist also, since gout is considered a type of Arthritis.

You can get through this by learning to work through the pain, one day at a time, one step at a time. It's not easy, but we will all be here to support you through it. It's almost a combination of accepting that the pain is there, so what can you do to decrease the pain level at that moment, or to get through your day. It takes time to learn how to read your bodies signals, to know when to stop and rest, to know a specific foods is aggravating your health, and things like that. I hope I said something to help. You'll be in my prayers. Hugs!! 🙂🙏💕🌼
