Thanks everyone for the feedback....

As an example of today, I woke up this morning feeling weak in the left arm and hand with some pain in the left arm muscle. Some in the right as well, but most in the left arm. I can also feel some pain in the forearm up the arm itself. Weird.

Take a shower, and head off to the train. Place my hand on the seat in front of me for like 15 minutes, and notice that the pain is gone, but my hand still feels detached ( like I can move all my fingers and wiggle them but it feels like i have a glove on ) all the while the other hand feels kinda the same. It's always the pinkie finger that feels the most out of place. Oh, and I always seem to feel nausea in the mornings, like I want to throw up but just seem to burp alot. That's always fun. It goes away when I get to the office and sit down to work.

I notice I'm flush ( red and feel warm in the face ) with no temp at anytime of the day. It just comes and goes. I have never noticed any spasm or locking up of my limbs when they twitch; just a few fire off's and then done.

I think in reality I do possibly have Fibromyalgia. At my next neuro visit I plan to ask if we can do the EMG again to test if I have any loss of muscle, but I still think that since I can still left pretty heavy things ( i was a fool and lifted a 150 lb TV for my wife the other day ) i'm not really seeing the muscle waste.

Also, I always described myself as feeling like I was on the tail end of having a bad cold with the soreness, weakness and general malaise.

As for the Lexapro, I've never really been sick or needed any meds before now. I mean sure I'm scared and all, but I think after my neuro put me on Nortriptlyne and i went back 2 weeks later seeing pink elephants, I'm a little hazy on stuff.

And the best part is i'm adopted. So now I'm trying to find out about my real parents medical history ...

When it rains ....
