Hi… New here but had to try find a few answers if anyone can comment.
I’ve been having aches and pains for a good few years now and the doc insists its Fibro… but recently it’s got much worst to the point where it’s really driving me mad!
Just been to the field with the dog and the ball… throwing it is causing me so much pain (feels like all my joints are lose and clicking) and I know I’ll just seize up now I’ve got back and have pain for the next few days… 2 months ago I used to go to the gym but have stopped… I was finding my muscles swelling up instantly and was in quite a bit of pain… I’d come down on the weights from 80 kg to 70 kg to 50 kg over about 2 years anyway as I’d lost stamina… only thing is, you come down, you can never go back up, it’s a one way deal…
I also have a split 6 pack from a good few years ago… I think that could have started my problems or maybe was the first weak part to go when I didn’t realise I had something… I ripped it on a trip to China carrying two very heavy bags on a train that jolted… thought someone had stabbed me, sat down for a bit and the pain went so just carried on… was only a few days after I realised I’d pulled my 6 pick in two…and the pain / fibro / MS tends to hit this… making my abs swell… can this happen… can it hit weak points more? It feels like my insides are falling out as I think my muscles are so weak here. I’m also having a bit of trouble breathing now… Tight and can’t get a full breath… and I only have to do a few things in the garage and I’m sweating… It’s like my muscles are just fading away?
I just hurt like hell everywhere… Tingles in the arm and legs have come on over the past 4 weeks also… Great… I have been cold in the past… dizzy spells, can’t think…
But, I don’t have the typical Fibro issues… I don’t have any tender points on my body… I don’t wake up feeling tight and can’t move… In fact, mornings are a good time… its only as the day goes on I get burning around my spine, aches and pains in my back / front / legs, tired etc… Fog not too bad… No headaches ever… Did have a nap mid day as I can’t get through at weekends without one?
Been for lots of tests and scans but all inconclusive… but my Doc wont send me for a tap or a MRI head scan because he knows better?
So, is it Fibro as the Doc says?.. I think I tick more boxes for MS or even ALS? Would be good to check notes with someone else as I think my wife is getting very fed up of me going on about it… how every day it’s something else I can’t do or hurts
Thanks for any comments… John
