Do I have fibro?

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi I have been experiencing back pain and random pain recently, also tiredness. I went to the doctor and they did a fibro trigger point test on me, I did not feel any more pain from it so she ruled it out. I have had low vitamin d before and she thinks it may be this..but the pain can be really bad sometimes. Can someone shed any light?

    Hi Lucy,

    Where do you get the pain, can you describe it to me? I have been having terrible leg pains and burning thighs and knees whereby they feel really sore but there is nothing visible. I also have random other pains. My vit D and Folate are both low so am starting supplements tomorrow. If these symptoms don't improve gp says they will.liik into it further.

    Not sure if fibromyalgia could be the reason. - any ideas anyone?

    Hi Lucy, if you didn't feel any pain on the trigger point test, I feel it's unlikely you have fibro. I had low Vit d levels a couple of years ago as well as fibro, and noticed the difference after I started taking Vit d, so maybe you just have that. When I had the trigger point test, it was exquisitely painful. x

    Hello Lucy

    It's difficult when our symptoms mimick or cross over with other conditions.

    If you need more advise you could think about returning to your GP maybe.

    You know how you feel so trust yourself and ask questions about your symptoms.

    Good luck 😊
