I have had many 'issues' for years and after a very stressful 4-5 years they are getting worse. I suspect either hypothyroid, fibro, or chronic fatigue, since many symptoms are overlapping. My dr seems to want to blame everything on my anxiety and only suggested I reduce my stress and take an antidepressant.
I am not sure what to do from here. I could go see a different dr but I am tired of trying to convience my dr that something is wrong. I am rying to do my own research but the fibro pain is what really throws me off. I have severe pain in my upper back, left elbow, both wrists and hands/fingers all the time. I am very stiff in the morning and have alot of lower back pain in the morning. Is this enough pain to warrant me continueing to concider fibromyalgia? What else do I need to push my dr to do/look at?
Thanks for any possible help or suggestions!!View Thread
Thank you! I just feel like I don't know which way to go. It could be firbo or soemthing else but I can't get any cooperation so I don't know. No dr will do anything beyond a TSH test for low thyroid which doesn't really tell you how your thyroid is functioning even though it is accepted as a thyroid function test.
I'd love to hear about anyone elses list of symptoms to get a better real life picture of fibromyalgia. I know the possible list is long, but it is also different for everyone.View Thread
