I have been having new and strange symptoms that are not normal for me with my fibromyalgia so after much hesitation I decided to go to the doctor to make sure it wasn't anything more sinister. I was a bit concerned about MS because many of my symptoms matched.
Well my doctor made me feel like an absolute hypochondriac. He actually laughed and talked about people thinking they have conditions when they don't. I was so embarrased. He said all my symptoms were probably fibromyalgia (numbness, tingling, nerve pains, overwhelming fatigue, balance problems, co-ordination etc). But the thing is I don't have muscle tenderness at all, and these symptoms like I said are not typical for me. I've had fibromyalgia for years (diagnosed for the past four) and it just didn't seem normal.
Is it just fibro and I'm over reacting. Do you guys get atypical flares like this with a whole batch of new symptoms?
I feel I must be going crazy here and that really I'm just not a strong enough person to get on with my life like everyone keeps telling me to.
