  • Is it fibromyalgia or a misdiagnosis?

    Is it fibromyalgia or a misdiagnosis? Please get more opinions! My 34 yr old son who lives several states away from me was diagnosed was fibromyalgia over a year ago then his symptoms just got worse. He got pneumonia 6 months ago and when more tests were done he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s. Already at Stage 2. Since then he is now at stage 3 and has to have a bone marrow transplant. Please keep us in your thoughts and I truly hope none of you or anyone ever has to go through this ordeal!

    Flare up

    Woke up this morning with swollen hands, feet and hurting all over especially the joints in my hands and feet. I seem to be very sensitive to cold, if I get cold I hurt. And humidity is a huge factor.. And I've been fighting fatigue for years, I was given a so called diagnosis of Fibromyalgia about 10 years ago. But I can't afford to see doctors or anything. My husband is disabled and I'm the only one who can try to work for us.. Any suggestions for any help is greatly appreciated..
