Had a test where the doctor told me to stand with my feet together, arms out in front of me and then close my eyes. I immediately started wobbling all over the place. Felt like I was going to fall over. Only after a few moments he said ok I've seen enough, and made me open my eyes. Is it normal to wobble all over the place and not be able to stand still? I had the rest of my family do this, and all of them were able to stand perfectly still. View Thread
I went to the doctor yesterday to have an exam for ssi. While doing the exam he noticed my left side was far weaker than my right side. i noticed the paper he was writing on was on a scale of 0 to 5. For my left side he put 1's and 2' for everything. Right side I had 4' and 5'. Has anyone had this type of exam and what does the numbers mean? Thanks.View Thread
Have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia for over a year now.
Symptoms I now am having all together..Depression. Fatigue big time. All joints burning. Muscle pain in arms and legs. Right hand toes tingling and painful. Forgetfulness. Memory problems: forgot how to get off toilet, forgot grand daughters last name, went to put clothes in sink, not washer. Heat sensitivity. Cold sensitivity. Light sensitivity. eye pain when moving left eye, cloudiness at times, cataracts and floaters both eyes. Headaches coming on suddenly, more frequently. Can't raise arms straight up without pain. Losing balance,falling. hand weakness and shakes at times. right leg twitching,jerking and painful at night. (keeps me awake). left arm twitching and jerking mostly at night. Incontinence. Constipation.
It seems now that taking 100 mgs in morning and 75 mgs at night Savella for my Fibro isn't helping any more. Can't increase the Savella due to horrible nightmares.
I can't help wondering if something else is going on now too.
