MS or fibromyalgia

natt37natt37 Member Posts: 1 Listener

Hi everyone hope you're all ok. I was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia, which runs in my family.   

I am very concerned I have been misdiagnosed, I have a head tremor (looks like I am saying no over and over) I also feel like I have a constant cold, runny nose and sore throat. Fatigue, headaches and so on. I don’t really get the chronic pain associated with fibro but I do have very bad restless leg syndrome. I feel weak like my body is failing.

Does anyone else here with fibro have tremors? Is what I am feeling fibro? I feel I was diagnosed too quickly because of the family history.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post.

    Hi @natt37 welcome to the forum, might be best speaking with your Dr about how you feel. They would be best person to advice. Hopefully you get right answers and get sorted soon

    Hi thank you for your reply, I am ringing the doctors on Monday morning. I have been trying to find fellow fibro sufferer's to see if they have similar symptom's but I cannot seem to find answers.

    Fibro is essentially a collection of unexplained symptoms. Tremors are generally not accepted as being amongst those so I would agree with others that you need to return to your GP; forget about fibro and ask them to think of your diagnosis from scratch.

    Thank you so much for your thoughts. I am definitely going to push to be looked at more.
