Default Re: I'm New ... and in pain

Hi All,

I am not quite sure if I have fibro or not but the pains I go through are crazy. I have not seen a doctor about the pains yet.

Firstly, I have been diagnosed with GERDs and have a Hiatus Hernia - which my doctor says is no point operating on as it will keep recurring and the best this is to control my diet.

I also to get extremely stressed when overwhelmed with work or issues.

My doctor has prescribed some antidepressants which I have simply refused to take - knowing the consequences.

From the tender points of where the pain is normally situated for fibro, I do get the pains in the below areas, which started out a few months ago.

1) behind the ears at the base of the skull and feel the strain in my neck
2) on the trapezius muscles half-way between the spine and the shoulders
3) on the shoulder-blades
4) in the front just above the collarbone
5) about 2 inches below the collarbone on both sides of the breastbone
6) on the forearms along the line of the thumbs just below the crease of the elbows
7) on the insides of the knees.

More recently, I have been experiencing the pain along my left arm, in my armpit and it radiates to my breast. I am very worried about this. My job is a desk job and I am constantly using a computer. The pain in my left elbow is terrible when it starts and radiates all the way to the fingers on my left hand. I feel like my hand then has not strength.

I don't know what to do about this.....
