What else can go wrong

Jan 12, 2018 11:01 AM

So, I've been home sick for most of the week thinking I have what everyone else at work has.... Its been a fever, sore throat, chills, ache body and cold sweats and, after 3 days I finally decide to go visit my doctor. She tells me that it doesn't appear to be the flu, cold or any type of infection and that most of my symptoms can be explained by my condition. REALLY!!!! 😡 She provides me a link to 100 symptoms of Fibromyalgia and as start reading together and I'm think where was this info 4 months go at the time of diagnosis😒. Everything i had been feeling there in black and white and I am speechless😐😯. I guess she saw that i was a little upset and ordered some labs anyway just to be sure. It sucks because depressed is something that I wasn't feeling but by the time I left her office it was the only thing I could feel. Sometimes I feel like I'm losing my mind.

If I had those symptoms I wouldn't think of fibro.

It sounds just like fibro yo me especially if Lab work rules- out anything else. This are the symptom i have on intermittent basis. Triggered by weather changes. Rain or snow. I'll be praying for you & a clear diagnosis.

I'm glad she got some tests just in case. The overlap there between these symptoms and many bugs sounds extensive and if wrongly attributed cluld ignore other problems.

That's rough- I wish you the best with it all!!!
