Hello. I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm 31 and possibly have fibromyalgia. I will be going to my primary care dr Tuesday morning. For the past 6 months I've had chronic pain. My back muscles are in a constant spasm and my neck, shoulders, hips, legs, chest, etc hurt on and off as the pain moves around. I'm also tired most of the time. Sometimes it hurts just to even touch my skin. I'm not sure if anyone else has experienced this. It seems like the pain will be tolerable for a period of time but then flare up again. It's very frustrating as I have 4 young kids who need my attention, not to mention trying to keep up with the cleaning, laundry, and cooking. I usually feel ok from mid-morning-late afternoon. What kind of tests can I expect for a diagnosis? Does anyone have any advice for me on how to deal with this until I can get diagnosed? Thanks all!View Thread
