I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia several years ago, but I am not sure that is what it is or that I have it and other problems on top of it. But I do have the large nots under my skin in my back around the shoulder blades and in my calves, in both on the outside of the leg from the knee area all the way to the foot. My achilles tendon feels like a rock all the time day and night. The pressure points are at the hips, collar bone area arms below the shoulder and the lower back and neck. At least that where all mine are.
I have really bad knots on my shoulders middle back neck gets extremely sore at the back . I have just stopped smoking not long ago, and cut down on alcohol by 98% - it seem to be sorer and I feel extremely tired all the time. Also sweating constantly - this is so hard and the only person who i feel believes me is my 12 yr old daughter who lives with me. Have had a heck of a life emotionally & physically. Struggled with anger issues, addictions etc. Ppl think I'm a loser. v painful. I don't have a career and soon I'll be 36. I don't know what to do ! This is by far the worst condition especially when depression is involved.
In my country there are alot of ppl who think I am making it up. This is making me feel worse everyday.
I Know exactly what you are going through, I went to at least 6 Drs. Finally I went to Vanderbelt hospital in Nashville TN it is a learning hospital and one of the best. They are the ones that told me I had it. They also told me I had Naropthay on top of it and they can aggravate each other. Hang in there and try not to get down I know it is hard. I was working when it hit me.
I got to a certian point and had to stop, my regular Dr wanted to put me on higher dose of pain meds and antidepression meds too, I got mad and slamed my fist and said your not hearing me I can not do this anymore. Well he woke up then. But I have taken my self off most of the pain meds because I could not function. I just live one day at a time . I had to file for disabilty Social Security. It took 3 years to get it, but I finally did. I am 49 it started with me in my 30s.
