I have had anxiety for years, I was just diagnosed with Fibromyalgia yesterday. I went in when I was experiencing the tender burning spots all over my body. Since these started, I noticed I also have a constant feeling of anxiety throughout my body. It's a bit like butterfly's in the stomach, but it's all over and feels strongest in my chest. Is this my body reacting to the pain? I'm not on any medication yet so I'm hurting pretty bad. The doctor said my pulse was higher then normal for me when I went in. Could this feeling of anxiety increase my pulse? Also, I had a very bad experience yesterday, my sciatic nerve was pinching or something, I haven't experienced that since I was pregnant. It lasted all day and all night. Could Fibromyalgia be linked to sciatic nerve pain? Any correlation between the two? One last thing, what do you recommend for pain that doesn't turn you into a total zombie? I have a 6 month old baby that I need to be able to care for. My body does well with Vicodin and Percocet but those don't seem to be prescribed to patients often. I want something that works!
