Crazy train......

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi I'm new to the forum....thank you for all the information I have found it very helpful.

A few questions I have not formally been diagnosed I am in the testing stages. I have pins and needles in feet and hands, pain in my joints where I can barely walk or get up at times. I have a positive ana level and a low vitamin d level. Recently I have developed double vision in my left eye. My Neuro sent me to and eye specialist because my muscles are weak in the eye. For months now during the day and at night I itch...all the time and break out in welts and hives. This had to be all related right??? I feel like I am going crazy.

    The itching and welts and hives sound more like an allergy sweetie. You might get that checked out. Otherwise the other symptoms certainly describe our Fibromyalgia condition. If you are wondering for sure if you have it, please ask your doctor to send you to a Rheumatolgist. He would be able to diagnose it more definitely. There are so many symptoms that go along with this condition, but it is also manageable. Nutrition can play a key role as well as limiting your stress. Stress seems to contribute the most to developing FM. So don't despair sweetie. Just continue to search for answers. But please get those allergy symptoms checked out. Maggie xx

    Welts, hives, itch...nit fibromyalgia.

    I suggest you look at what you have done, what you have eaten, new laundry detergent, different sheets...because you are allergic to something.

    Allegra-D or Benadryl are both available over the counter.

    If you get the allergy out of the way, it will be easier to sort put the rest.

    hugs

    Hi Hotmess, my 14 year old daughter suffered with welts and swellings (angioedema ) when she was younger and they couldn't find an allergy! I have since found out with paediatric fibromyalgia that this is a very early sign of fibromyalgia in children. She now takes Fexofenadine daily.

    However I agree with the other the other people that have commented on your discussion that you should be tested for allergies as a precaution X

    Hi hotmess. The itching and welts can be fibro or an allergy. I presented with a rash that they linked to fibro. Not everyone gets it. It just means more tests. I know you don't want to hear that. You just want answers. You are not alone and you are not a hot mess....just seems that way. Hopefully you can get answers soon.

    Thank you everyone for the advice. I will definitely discuss allergies with my Neuro and pcp. Someone also suggested it could be med related as I started taking cymbalta along with lyrica and a few others daily. As I am sure you all know I have forgotten what it feels like to wake up and start my day without pain. I really appreciate the kind words.

      It could be new meds. Talk to your docs and keep us posted. There are several options on the market, as well as, alternative therapies. Stay strong and hope you start feeling better soon!
