Ok, so I have seen a Rhuemy. My pr. felt I have Fibromyalgia..so my Rhuemy agreed. No test, mri's, x-ray's. Here is Cymbalta and Tramadol, that's it. I did start out with the widespread joint and muscle pain with trigger point. The reason i went to see the Rhuematologist almost a year ago, was because I was waking in the middle of the night iwth severe pain. I have such stiffness in my hands that it last all day. Both hands and all the same fingers. Mainly middle three although the thumb is sometimes involved. After a little while I started getting sharp pain in my fingers. Shooting from the bottom two joints and up my fingers. that was it at first but it was different than what I had before. I saw the Rhuemy once a month after. he would move a leg, then the other and press on my abdomen. 1 1/2 months into seeing him I woke one morning and coudn't bend my knees. I layed there foralmost forty -fiveminutes. Couldn't move my hands or knees.My knees felt like they were on fire from the inside out. A couple of weeks later I was at work when I felt my left elbow the worst sharp, shooting pain. Two days later my right elbow was doing the same thing. Then i got a knot above both joints(still there in the elbow) sore and shooting pain, like it was pressing on my nerves. Then it was my feet, then shoulders. I started spending Sundays in bed sleeping, I couldn't get enough sleep. 14 hours if my family would let me. I would wake use the rest room, stick my nose up to the food and back to bed. Just blahhhhh. Now I've herniated my disc and had sciatica 3 x's in the last 8 months. Is this still Fibro. I know you are not Dr.'s but from anyone else'd experience. Oh and now my family says my finger joints are horribly swollen, like I've been punching things. Anyone experience this. I've tried to google it to no availe. i have a new Rhuemy and will see him in 2 weeks, but in the meantime some answers would be great. Sorry for the novel.
