I've been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, CFS/ME, IBS and Anxiety, after extensive investigations and tests into my symptoms with no apparent reason being found for them. For the last 2 weeks I had been feeling really quite well for a change, considering normally there is usually an almost constant feeling of being ill and groggy, well that was until a couple of days ago. There is one thing I have noticed that I wanted to share with you all about when my condition(s) flare up.
Well, the day before yesterday I woke feeling fine, until the evening when I noticed my left eye starting to randomly twitch, spasm and feel lumpy, but it looked fine. A little while after that I started to feel a bit ill, but nothing drastic, but I did think to myself before bed that I was going to start having a flare up tomorrow, my left eye still twitching away randomly. Low and behold I woke up yesterday and felt awful, I felt faint and unsteady like I am on a boat, breathing was laboured, my whole body seemed to ache and be in pain all over, particularly my legs, my stomach and bowels were churning and gurgling a lot, and I felt nauseous and bloated, and I generally felt awful, all the time my left eye still randomly twitching, spasming and feeling lumpy, and today I'm much the same as yesterday. I have noticed that when I've gone through these flare ups in the past I have noticed I always get the left eye twitch, spasm, lumpy feeling, the right eye is fine, it's always just the left one.
I have now taken this eye twitching experiencing as my first warning sign that a flare up is on the way, and I was wondering if any other Fibromyalgia sufferers experience the same, or have their own warning signs? As I've said I've had extensive testing done, one test being a head MRI scan, and as I said everything has always been fine.
I'd be interested to know what you all think of my findings, whether you think the left eye twitch is indeed a sign of a flare up and if any of you experience anything similar to me.
Any thoughts, comments or views on this would be greatly appreciated.
