Hi, I'm a nineteen year old girl. I've been experiencing pain all over for quite a while now. When I say all over, I really mean all over! Every day a different area hurts, like stabbing pain or pressure, with only a few areas that hurt every day without fail.
Recently I've been experiencing a loss of appetite. When I think of food, it's nauseating. When I'm actually hungry, I become nauseated after the first bite or two. Sometimes I have to force myself to finish eating a meal (if cereal really counts as a meal...).
To make it worse, after I eat ANYTHING I swear I can feel it move through me, and it hurts! It starts with chest pain, then lateral chest pain, then stomach pain, then just overall abdominal pain.
What I want to know is if this is a common symptom of fibromyalgia. Because I'm so sensitive to mild stimuli, I can't tell if my body is just overreacting to a mild eating problem or if this is a serious problem.
Every day I have a harder and harder time getting myself to eat. I find myself inquiring about dinner and not actually wanting to eat it. I only eat because I know I need to, but I feel unhealthy eating anything at all.
Please help. I would prefer it if you didn't just share your pains with no intent of helping me out. What is your fibromyalgia like? Does it make it hard to eat? And are you sensitive like I am?
