Apr 11, 2016 12:10 AM

I have to make an appointment today for doctors as they have done blood test to find out 1 if it is fibromylgia I have or not 2 if I'm going through the change and a load of others I am rather worried on what they will come back with I didn't sleep a lot at all last night as I'm that Worred the doctor said there at lest around 20ish tests they are doing I've never been so concerned about blood test as I am with these ones. Just sat here wondering what if they find something what if they don't my head is so mixed up right now

I hope that you get some answers. Waiting and worrying sucks.

Hope you can share how it goes. Are you going alone or with someone?

Shirl70, first let me say welcome and I am sorry that you are in pain. You need to know that there are NO blood tests that diagnose fibromyalgia. Blood work can determine inflammation and other autoimmune issues like Lupus, Lyme's Disease and markers for some others. You need (if you haven't already), to see a neurologist, rheumatologist, psychologist, etc... You will need to have CT Scans, possible MRI's, nerve conduction studies, etc... There are pressure points that the doctor can check and see which are giving you pain. There are 12 checkpoints that the doctor will concentrate on but just with pain at those locations does not necessarily indicate fibromyalgia. I hope that you are able to find the proper doctors to help you to find a definitive diagnosis and a plan of action to help alleviate your pain. Best wishes and {{{Hugs}}} to you. 💕🙏🏻🌻

Shirl70, welcome! You've come to the right place for support. As hard as it is try not to let your mind run away with worries. It could take some time before you get answers. But each step you take will bring you closer, and hopefully narrow down possibilities. It's good you like your doctors, and they're helping so well. Hugs & prayers you will find out soon, and will have a great team of doctors who will work together so you have better arts. 🙂💕🙏🌼
