I've previously posted on various forums (ie ms forum, ear,nose and throat, sleep disorders) to get to the bottom of my symptoms. Please take a look at my posts. I today received a very informative reply from a lady who said that my symptoms could be fibromyalgia.
My main symptoms are (sorry there are quite a few, at the risk of sounding like a hyperchondriac):
waking with numb arm and leg; tingling in limbs; 'vibration' going through body; heavy feet (especially left); pins and needles in hands and feet; cramps; muscle spasms; tremor in left index and little finger; VERY troublesome tinnitus in left ear only; dizziness; lightheadedness; feeling off-balance; pressure in head; pressure behind left eye and unequal pupil dilation; slight headache on left side; extreme fatigue; nausea; night sweats; no energy; anxiety; depression sometimes (not surprising!); blurred vision.
I know I sound like a basket case, but this is why I NEED to get to the bottom of what's going on!
I also, about 15 years ago, woke up and couldn't walk. I called out a doctor; went for tests but no reason was found. I also have woken up twice with very blurred vision, which returned to normal after a few hours leaving just pain.
What I'd like to know is, does this sound like fibromyalgia, and if so, is it normal to have fibromyalgia without a lot of pain, as I assumed that fibromyalgia was a very painful condition, and I don't suffer a great deal of pain, apart from the heavy legs and extreme tired body and mind feeling.
I'd be very grateful for any advice, as I am at my wits' end.
Those who have fibromyalgia report a wide range of sleep difficulties, including a hard time getting to sleep, continual awakening throughout the night, as well as sleep apnea (characterized by abnormal breathing) and restless leg syndrome (an overwhelming urge to move the legs).
Fibromyalgia symptoms may intensify depending on the time of day -- morning, late afternoon, and evening tend to be the worst times, while 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. tends to be the best time.
I must inform you that fibromyalgia is only a name given by doctors who do not know what is the cause of this problem and they can not cure it. They can only give prescriptions to those they suspect they have this. Well, the problem with these people is that they have dislocated and pinched nerves all over their bodies. Those nerves need to be reset soonest as it may get worse. I know as I have been a Healer for 14+ years.
You should seek a professional who does this to help you out.
