Default Not sure if i have FIBRO...Please....please....help :(

Hi everyone

New member here - my first day actually.

I suffer health anxiety. people always ask what's bothering you? what causes the anxiety? I know very well it's health issues. Apart from how i feel health wise I have a pretty good life and nothing I should feel fearful about.

I've had Health Anxiety for at least 10 years.

Im wondering if its mainly or all anxiety or if it may be FIBORMYALGIA?

My GP thinks I have Fibro yet i went to see a specialist ( rhumatologist ) but he thinks I DO NOT have it....

My symptoms are:
* Sore/aching legs, feet
* Sore/aching lower back
* Sore/aching stomach/pelvis area
* Sore/aching and sometimes stinging bladder area
* Sore/aching rectum area? THIS CONCERNS ME THE MOST

I have had two cystoscopys and a colonoscopy and they found nothing of real interest. Ive had about 10 blood tests recently, urine tests, bone density scans, x rays, ultrasounds etc and nothing is ever found.

I do have moderate scoliosis but besides that nothing that can really warrant constant aching day and night.

I worry and obsess about it all day and everyday.

Does this sound like health anxiety or FIBRO or something else? Does anyone

have any tips that
WORK....and/or want to talk to me about it via email?
Feeling pretty down and hopeless

J

Hello James, welcome to the forum !

I am so sorry for what you have been going through! Would you be able to find someone / specialist that you can talk to, someone who can help you overcome your health anxiety?

It is a good thing that the rhumatologist thinks that you do not have Fibromyalgia; Fibromyalgia has more symptoms.

I hope, gradually, you would be feeling better.
