    Confused and blindsided husband

    I would say maybe if you just give her a bit of time she will change her mind. It is great that you have a good relationship with her parents and that will help in the long run and maybe they will be able to find out where her head is at and point her in the right direction.

    Possibly Fibro?

    Well your right all those symptoms and more point toward fibro. But to many doctors they don't believe in it or feel helpless giving such a diagnosis because other than medication there is nothing they can do about it.

    Random Paresthesia pain like Electric shock, burning sensation and Pins.

    I would suggest going back to a neurologist and asking if it would be worthwhile to be tested for Parkinson and MS. Remember that somethings take a while to be figured out as a lot of illnesses have the same symptoms, that includes fibro. I know how scared you must be and with this starting...
