Default Fibro symptoms?

I haven't had a single diagnosis for my pain. I'd say it started late 2017 with mild discomfort around my right upper abdomen/rib cage. It eventually developed in sharp, quick pains that seemed to always change location, mostly it stayed on my right side, but on different days it could be on upper, middle or lower abdomen. My right flank (rib cage I suppose) would hurt sometimes when I twisted my torso. I went to the doctors in 2018, they did all the bloodwork, fecal tests, physical tests and abdominal ultrasound of all my organs. All normal! I was prescribed D-vitamin course for a slightly low d-vitamin values. After a ~5 months of pain, it suddenly dissapeared. I had no pain for 10 months straight.

Now in 2019, I've had a solid 6-7 months of pain once again. Last week I had my bloodwork done and once again all normal. Also I had my thoracic spinal area xrayed and it was also normal. The pain that I've experienced lately is way more versatile than before; I now have sharp pains all over my upper body, and sometimes even in the legs and arms. It's like all of my rib cage is hurting, lying in some positions seem impossible due pain. My lower posterior ribs are very sore to the touch. Also points in my upper back, next to the shoulder blade are sore when lightly massaged. Sometimes the pain is experienced on the lower right front ribs, and this pain seems to radiate all over my abdomen. It feels like it's not a 'deep' pain, but rather superficial. And just by changing position, I can often make the pain go away momentarily.

Also my neck hurts often and the pain is no longer only on the right side, left sided upper back pain is also present at times. Other constant symptoms are these intense episodes of fatigue when I feel like I could fall asleep on my feet, but when I try to sleep, I can't. I get constant chills, like I'd be very cold for a moment (no fever during all of this). On some days I get headaches that will last for the whole day. I also get random muscle twitches all over my body and these can occur 20-30 times a day. Often I feel disoriented, foggy and get random dizzy spells.

My doctor says its unlikely to be an internal organ related disease, as all my blood work is fine; no infection, no evidence of gallbladder or liver dysfuntion according to the specific blood tests, ultrasound and xray. He has now reffered me to physical therapy (for which there is months worth of waiting in line).

I'm very anxious these days. I need to know what all of this is. Is it something chronic but not life threatning, or is it something more severe. From you guys I'd like to know if these symtoms relate to any of the Fibromyalgia symptoms you're experiencing? My doc hasn't even mentioned said syndrome. I just keep coming back to that conclusion since my symptoms are so all over the place

Default Re: Fibro symptoms?

It's good your blood-work etc is normal.

"fibromyalgia" is a label used for a wide range of pain-related symptoms that are otherwise mysterious.

It certainly sounds like you have a lot of muscle pain - "myalgia". Stress on muscles spreads if not corrected. Chronic pain makes you tired, anxious etc. so no wonder you are concerned.
I believe there is a fix:

All my symptoms have got better as I learned to use my body better. Using the correct muscles - 5 the main muscles of movement - to balance my body, allowing the sore and stressed areas to heal.

I started working with my Base-Line muscles. pelvic floor Base rectus abdominis Line. Thinking longer and stronger with every in breath.



The body's core pillar of strength.

Then the trapezius muscles for the upper body - a blanket of muscle from midback to the back of the head, shoulder to shoulder. that should be free to spread in all directions supporting the head and arms through a full range of movement.

The gluteus maximus and rectus femoris muscles of each leg, solid muscles to align and connect the legs to Base-Line support.

Focusing on using these muscles to their full extent and regaining my full range of movement was the key to releasing all the pain and recovering my health. It has taken time and effort but the difference in how my body feels is amazing.

Focus on these muscles doing whatever you do, develop the connection between body and mind and feel how to heal yourself.
