I came across your message, sorry to hear you are having all of this hit you so hard. I have had it for over 12 years and still have very large issues. Hang in there and join as many groups as you can, everybody has different idea's about how to deal with the Fibro....Best of Luck , Jessica
welcome to the forum. sorry to hear of all your trouble with health problems. Have you seen an neurologist or a rheumatologist? The neurologist is needed for the tingling and numbness issues and the rheumatologist is the kind of doctor that diagnosises fibro. Other doctors just don't get it and sometimes all the medications given can cause serious side effects.
In the mean time read around the forum and you might find tips for dealing with the other symptoms you have. I would say stress is huge in your life right now with having a sick friend and also dealing with strange feelings and pain. Maybe you just need someone who has time to listen to you and help you relax. Hope you feel better soon. :)
