    Is this all fibromyalgia

    I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia maybe 8 yrs ago. The dr tested my tender points and dx came immediately. I was hurting but things were not that bad. I was still moving.

    It could be as simple as a medication reaction.

    My daughter and a close friend of my niece experienced alot of what you just wrote. I myself have FM...but they did not. The symptoms were so close to MS that a diagnosis was forthcoming for Jen.

She had them remove the Mirena IUD and after a month or so the symptoms subsided. Check with your gynecologist on the rare side effects....

    Hello, I need help getting to the bottom of things and all four doctors claim I'm depressed yet I don't express a single sign of depression nor am I unhappy in such a way. I'm a 23 year old man, have previously smoked tobacco but quit. I do not take any medications. I got an influenza at the end of 2015 with recurring infections after that for a while, then I never got back to normal. I remember the aches I got from that first influenza (not actually confirmed by a doctor but could have....
